When it comes to finely chopping fresh herbs, cutting fish, or slicing vegetables the Amici 7″ Hollow Edge Santoku is the versatile knifeyou’re looking for. This Japanese-inspired chef’s knife is the only knife in theAmici series with a lighter half bolster; the area between the blade and the handle on forged knives. The half bolster both protects your fingers from the blade and provides enough lightweight maneuverability for more detailed knifework. The Santoku blade is also slimmer, making this knife particularly suitable for fine cuts and paper-thin slices. The custom-grained Calabrian olive wood handle is naturally water-resistant and antibacterial, and its organic shape fits comfortably in hands of any size.
