The Santoku is the knife of “three virtues” – equally adept at chopping, slicing and mincing. The thin blade and straight edge of the Mac Superior 4 inch Santoku make it an ideal knife for everyday use in the kitchen.
The world’s sharpest knives, Mac knives are legendary among professional and home cooks alike. Each Mac knife is carefully and thoroughly constructed in a 64-step process. Tempered for exceptional hardness, a Mac knife will hold its edge and stay sharper longer than most other cutlery out there. Light weight and well-balanced, Mac knives feature a patented ergonomic design that lets you work more efficiently. Oversized handles with gently curved edges nestle comfortably into your hand, and the symmetrical handle shape is suited to left- or right-handed users. Mac Superior knives go through an extra processing step called “sub-zero tempering” for even better hardness and edge retention. Superior blades are constructed of a high-carbon chrome molybdenum vanadium alloy for superior hardness, razor-sharpness and rust-resistance. Each Superior blade is ground thin – between 2.0 and 2.5mm – so that you get cleaner slices, with less wedging. Designed with a rounded tip, an elevated handle and no bolster, Mac Superior knives give you better knuckle clearance and safety. An innovative hole in the blade allows you to hang the knife for storage – one of the most popular design features of Mac’s original knife line.
