Slice, Dice, and Mince Efficiently

The Carl Mertens Foreman Santoku knife meets the need for a versatile tool during food prep. The word santoku refers to the three tasks it’s designed for: slicing, dicing, and mincing. The blade’s flat edge makes it easy to cut using a single downward motion for efficiency. Part of the Carl Mertens Foreman series, the santoku knife has a rust-proof X50CrMoV15 stainless steel blade equipped for clean cuts. Once the santoku knife is in your kitchen, you’ll never want to put it down. Handmade in Solingen, Germany. Limited lifetime warranty.

About Carl Mertens Foreman Knives

Foreman Line

The Foreman line from Carl Mertens showcases the perfect balance of strength and beauty. All Foreman knives are hand-forged to create a single knife that’s incredibly strong and will hold up against the toughest ingredients. Each blade comes with an ergonomic handle made from oiled walnut and shaped to provide a comfortable grip. The Foreman blades are made with rust-proof X50CrMoC15 stainless steel for a blade that will stay incredibly sharp for years. Designed by designer Carsten Gollnick, the Carl Mertens Foreman series was created to meet the highest standards in gourmet cutlery. In 2018, the entire Carl Mertens Foreman line was awarded the IF Design Award. A fantastic achievement for this German knife brand.

Making Carl Mertens Cutlery

Handmade in Solingen, Germany

Solingen, Germany is known for its high-quality cutlery. In fact, Solingen is known as the steel capital of the world and the "city of blades", and is where all Carl Mertens knives are made. In order to mark a product with the name Solingen, all key manufacturing stages must have been processed and finished within Solingen. The product must also meet strict quality standards in order to be entitled to use the "Made in Solingen" mark. This means that a knife that was completely crafted and assembled in Solingen can not say "Made in Solingen" unless it meets these required quality standards.
