If you spend much time on OnlyKnives, you’ll know that we love MAC Knives. We raved about both the Superior and Professional series earlier.
But today, we’re going to focus on a single knife — the Superior Santoku.
It’s an amazing value — you will not be able to find another knife made of these high-end materials in this price range.
America’s Test Kitchen, for example, gave it their top overall score in a recent rating.
So what’s so great about it? The steel blade is made of an alloy of high-end materials that allow it be made extremely sharp and to retain that edge over time.
Their Santoku knife is an all-purpose Chef’s knife with a Japanese shape to it that many people prefer. It’s a bit on the small side at just 6.5 inches but that should serve you well if you like a smaller knife.
The high-end steel is not without one downside that must be mentioned. This knife is not intended to be left soaking in water or run through the dishwasher. If you’re okay with that, you simply cannot go wrong with this knife.
