17cm fully-forged hardened steel Santoku knife with a comfortable ergonomic handle. The Santoku knife is a Japanese style knife similar to a narrow cleaver and can be used for chopping, dicing and mincing, hence its name which means three virtues. This knife is particularly suitable for cutting thin slices of fish or meat. The Robert Welch Signature knife is a precision tool, hand honed and sharpened by master craftsmen to give you many years of optimum use. Robert Welch have worked with professional chefs to develop a range of knives that give you comfort in the hand and the optimum cutting action. Each knife has been indivually constructed for its specific task in food preparation. The handles and blades are set at the best angle to minimise fatigue. The knives have won a number of international awards including an iF design award (Germany), the GOOD DESIGN™ award (US) a red dot design award (Germany), the Excellence in Housewares ‘Cutting Edge' award (UK) 2009 and 2010 and a ‘Product of the Year' award (UK). They have also achieved the highest possible rating from the Craft Guild of Chefs. In support of the government initiative to tackle knife crime, we're no longer selling kitchen knives online, so please visit our shops. We have removed kitchen knife stock from the shop floor in all of our stores and replaced them with point-of-sale hang cards to ensure the safety of our Partners and customers. Customers must select the hang card of the required kitchen knife and show a Partner who will assist in obtaining the item from the stockroom. Worth knowing: By law, we are not permitted to sell a knife or blade to any person under the age of 18. Criminal Justice Act 1988 (as amended).
