The Santoku is a multipurpose knife used for just about every cutting job in the kitchen. The name means “three virtues.” Depending on who you ask, this refers either to the three types of foods it works especially well with — vegetables, proteins, and fruit, or for the three types of cuts at which it excels: slicing, dicing, and chopping. Slightly shorter than the standard chef’s knife, a santoku is very easy to manoeuvre—even in a smaller kitchen. There is plenty of belly to enable rocking cuts, which enhances the knife’s versatility. Whether slicing, chopping, mincing, or dicing, this comfortable knife will do it all.

My name is David Hoehler, and I’m a full-time knifemaker located in Sheffield Beach on the breathtaking North Coast of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. From the earliest days I can recall, I’ve been captivated by knives. At the tender age of 6, I received my very first Swiss army knife, and from that moment, a knife has been a constant presence in my pocket. It was in 2014 that I decided to embark on a journey to craft these cherished tools of utility, beauty, and precision.
