Wusthof - Santoku 7'' - Epicure Line

Article code 8233
1st knife in importance in the kitchen, the chef's knife is the masterpiece of your meals. Santoku is an alternative form to the chef's knife, lighter than the traditional chef's knife.

All purpose knife, it is used for 80% of kitchen tasks. We therefore quickly understand why it is important to choose a knife that is well thought out, well balanced and comfortable in hand.

The Epicure Line was made with one goal: reunite the German quality and strength of cutlery with the efficiency and lightness of Japanese knives

Technical characteristics:

  • Full length silk (blade)
  • Forged steel knife. Alloy making up the blade: hardness of 58 on the Rockwell scale (HRc), i.e. a medium hard steel
  • Handle made of natural fibers and resin
  • The depressions (alveoli) along the blade minimize the friction between food and the blade and allow them to come off more easily from the blade, making cutting easier.
  • Light, this knife also has a handle slightly smaller than a standard chef's knife, particularly suitable for smaller hands.
  • Contoured handle for increased comfort


  • It is very important to maintain your knife frequently (at least 1 to 2 times per week, even every day) with a rifle (or rat tail) made of a metal just as hard as that of your knife (consult us for more information).
    - Alternatively, the two-step sharpener is a practical tool that does not require technique.
    - The important thing is to use one or the other, but to use one. If you fail to do so, you will notice an under-performance of the edge of your knife and you will be exposed to an increased risk of injury.
  • Washing in the dishwasher strongly discouraged, since it dulls the edge of the knife (the sharp part of the knife); so hand wash.


Depending on the use, once or twice a year, sharpen your knife (on a grinding wheel or Japanese water stones). At any time, you can bring your knives to the store to have them sharpened by our Sandro Vecchio trimmer (generally 4 days).
