Previously I had thought it necessary to use a serrated knife to cut tomatoes, with this knife gravity will do all the work no back and forth motion required. Definitely recommended !
In a little more detail, when I decided I was going to join the ranks of "people who own a good knife" I started asking around on the internet; forums, blogs, and the like. The advise was generally "You need to try a knife, feel it in your own hands, and decide which one feels best". Fair enough advise, but then the other advise more often than not was "Buy a Wusthof!". I went with the latter.
Almost a year later and I'm still happy; the Wusthof Santoku is *sharp*; I can cut through tomatoes without a serrated blade, and onions in a matter of seconds - and I'm not exactly fast with a knife (I'm not a chef, just a food blogger).
Again - a great knife, well worth the purchase. It will make you enjoy the preperation of vegetables etc even more, which will only encourage you to cook more - and that is a good thing.
If you really want a practical kitchen knife then spend your money on the 8 or 10 inch Chef's (cook's) knife and leave the Santoku to the experts.
The only other knives you need in a domestic Kitchen are a paring knife and a bread knife (you will be quite surprised what you can slice with the serrated blade of a good bread knife, brilliant for cutting up a pineapple, yes, really!
Please choose wisely and think about what you want or need from a knife before spending this kind of money, buy the wrong one and you will regret it.
Hope my review helps with your choice!
I recently treated myself to this knife as I wanted to try a knife with a scalloped (Gratton) edge for preparing Asian cuisine and I must say, for its intended use it is a real gem.Read more ›
