I've heard about Santoku knives for years, but had never purchased one, already having a full set. I bought this for my daughter who will be moving into an apartment at college. I tried it out on vegetables, meat and even bread and it worked wonderfully well. It didn't hurt the sale price was ridiculously cheap.
