These Forschner knives really are exceptional. OnlyKnives named them the Best $50 Kitchen Knife Set a while back, and Cook’s Illustrated has lauded them many times as well.
The Santoku fits right in. For thirty bucks, you get a very sharp blade, a non-slip fibrox handle and a dimpled granton edge that prevents food from sticking.
The blade is high-carbon stainless steel. Personally, I’d still not throw them in the dishwasher or leave them soaking in water for fear of them dulling or staining.
The Santoku is not intended to be a replacement for your Chef’s knife, though it is sometimes marketed that way. But it makes a nice complement to your existing set and you really can’t go wrong with Victorinox.
