The Santoku knife's name comes from a Japanese word meaning "three virtues": mincing, dicing and slicing. The ultra-sharp stainless steel blade continues down into the durable POM plastic handle, giving this piece full metal tang. This item also features a stainless steel triple rivet design that ensures stability and longevity and will be an essential asset in your kitchen.
Caring for your Oneida Cutlery
Good quality cutlery will last a lifetime with proper care. Because cutlery should be cleaned immediately after use to prevent damage caused by certain foods, it is recommended that you wash it by hand in warm soapy water. Using a soft brush or sponge, gently rub each side of the blade. Rinse your knives thoroughly removing all soap. Dry by blotting with a soft cloth or paper towel.
Tips: Store knives in block or on a magnetic rack, never place knives in sink filled with other items. This can damage the blade and cause accidents, and always use a cutting board. Countertops and other hard surfaces can dull the blade.
