Dexter Russell V-Lo 9" Duo-Edge Santoku Cook's Knife 29283 V144-9GE
Santoku knives are the Japanese version of the chef knife and they can be used for the majority of kitchen tasks. Santoku refers to the three tasks that the knife excels at, slicing, dicing, and mincing. The top edge of the blade aligns with the top of the handle for perfect balance. Most of Dexter Russell’s santoku knives are equipped with a duo-edge blade allowing the knife to slice through everything it cuts. Santoku blades are shorter, lighter, thinner, and stronger than traditional chef knives. A western chef knife generally slices downward and then rocks the tip forward to complete a cut but the santoku relies more on a single downward cut and even landing from the heel to the tip. This creates less of a rocking motion and more of a straight motion.
The V-Lo line is all about making chefs happy with quality and comfort. The handle is crafted with Santoprene and polypropylene. When combined, the softness of the Santoprene with the firm structure of the polypropylene creates a handle that is both comfortable and strong. The handle is soft to the touch and has the firmness you need to maintain complete control over the blade. The blades are manufactured from proprietary DEXSTEEL stain-free, high-carbon steel, and are individually ground and honed. You will never find yourself continuously sharpening the V-Lo blades because they have unique edge geometry for a long lasting blade edge. Let a V-Lo knife become a part of your cooking life today.
