SABATIER Santoku Knife Review {Giveaway}


A good knife is very important when cooking.  I have a couple of go to knives in my kitchen and I was happy to add a new one, Sabatier 7 inch Santoku Knife.  Sabatier has a rich history dating back to 1812 in France.  You can read all about their heritage here.

I don't have a Santoku knife so I was curious how it would compare.  It is smaller and lighter than my Chef's Knife.  I've been testing it out for a couple of months using it for just about everything.

I have three knives that I use regularly in my kitchen.  A Santoku knife was a new addition.  The blade of a Santoku knife differs from a Chef's Knife.  It is straight and useful for chopping whereas a Chef's Knife is perfect for a rocking motion while using.  My first instinct was to use the Santoku Knife in the same fashion as a Chef's Knife so initially I wasn't too pleased with the results but after reading it is not designed for a rocking motion, I changed the way I was using it and things started to improve.

My first use was to mince cilantro as it is something I use just about everyday in my cooking.  I immediately noticed I was not getting a good mince.  After sharpening a couple of times, it was much did a much better job.


I liked how light this knife is and enjoyed using it for chopping.  For mincing I prefer my Chef's Knife.  I wished that the knife came sharpened well.  Overall it is a good multi-purpose knife.

  3. I've never used a Santoku knife but would love to try it. My favourite knife to use is probably my Chef's knife, although a close second would be my paring knife.
