The 10 Best Santoku Knives
This wiki has been updated 10 times since it was first published in October of 2018. Santokus feature a slightly broader profile than traditional French sabatiers or Japanese gyutos. There's a nearly endless selection of blades to choose from, and the difference between them comes down to personal preference, type of work, and skill level. Whether you're a fresh culinary neophyte or a seasoned seasoning veteran, one of these knives will certainly fit your needs. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. If you'd like to contribute your own research to the Wiki, please get started by reviewing this introductory video.

Tons of models to navigate here. Lots of well-known Western brands will fall short in santokus, so I made sure to thoroughly vet the less-known brands. Topped the list with one high-end, one great value, and one low-budget option.
