Signature Deep Santoku Knife 17cm

Designed in consultation with professional chefs, this 17cm deep Santoku knife from the multi-award winning Signature range features a fully forged German DIN 1.4116 stainless steel blade with a full tang for superior strength and balance. The Japanese-style blade edge is hand applied at a 15° angle. The handle is made from tactile DuPont™ and is ergonomically shaped for comfort and to minimise fatigue. The RW insignia is a permanent steel detail of the handle.

A wide scalloped blade makes Santoku knives ideal for the precision slicing and dicing of fruit and vegetables. The scalloped indentations create air pockets, pushing food from the blade and reducing friction when slicing. Designed with a more curved blade edge than our other Santoku knives. The depth of this knife allows it to tackle the very largest of tasks in the kitchen.

Product Highlights:
•  Highest quality German DIN 1.4116 stainless steel.
•  Hand applied 15° Japanese-style edge for superior sharpness.
•  Fully forged from a single piece of steel for superior strength.
•  Full tang for incredible strength and balance.
•  Angled bolster for full use of the cutting edge and precision control.
•  Hardened to Rockwell 56 for ease of maintenance.
•  Ergonomic DuPont™ handle, mechanically finished for hygiene.
•  Multi-award winning British design and a lifetime guarantee.

To maintain a superior cutting edge we strongly recommend the regular honing of this Santoku knife with a Signature Hand-held Knife Sharpener. All Signature kitchen knives are dishwasher safe. Supplied in presentation packaging.

What owners are saying...

32 years in professional kitchens

“These are my knives of choice, this particular knife is such a piece of beauty the balance and the way it sits in my hand is just devine. I came across these knives 7 years ago and keep buying ones to add to my collection. I bought one for a chef as a leaving present and then bought myself one, well it was Christmas after all. These knives hold their edge really well, it’s the shape and balance that I love working with them. They are an extension of my arm and I am one with the knife it makes my job easy and more pleasurable. So glad I bought this one! Happy choppping!”

Such a wonderful knife to use

“This collection has to be one of the best. This particular knife has a good balance and has a very, very comfortable handle. It is also very easy to control. The width is perfect for heavy cutting.”

Elegant and super sharp

“I have a variety of Robert Welch knives and have been building my collection up over the last 3 years. They are super sharp out of the box and that lasts the whole way through, especially if you follow the care guidelines and sharpen regularly (I use the hand-held sharpener).

The knives are very elegant. Comfortable for long periods of use and I strongly recommend having them stored on a magnetic strip. Quick access but also shows off their style!!”

A beautiful knife

“I am delighted with every aspect of this beautifully crafted knife. The only caveat is, I have only had it for a couple of weeks, so questions of how good it is at retaining its sharpness, I can't yet say. But it is a thing of beauty. Marvelously sharp.”

– Rod, 2nd June 2018
