KitchenAid Santoku Knife A lot of Westerners have fallen in love with the idea of the Santoku.

It's a nice idea -- you've heard about high-end Japanese knife brands and maybe you've even heard about razor-sharp Japanese steel. Why not try a Japanese style blade as well?

There's only one problem with that -- the Santoku was never intended to be the all-purpose utility knife it's become. Sure it's got a place in a well-equipped kitchen, but it really shouldn't replace your go-to Chef's knife.

With that out of the way, let's take a look at this Santoku from KitchenAid. KitchenAid makes decent knives for the money. Not great, but certainly not terrible.

This one features a high-carbon stainless steel blade with "grantons" -- dimples that help keep the food from sticking. The handle is contoured for a sure-grip.

Those are all nice features to have, and the price of this knife is quite compelling. If you've got just a few more dollars in your budget, I highly recommend the Forschner Santoku instead.
