Designed in consultation with professional chefs, this 17cm 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. The flat blade edge relies on a more singular downward cutting action, compared to the two-step slicing and rocking action of a cooks knife.
• 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.

“Very happy with that purchase and the quick delivery!”– Athi, 29th March 2019
The product is good.
“The cutting power of this knife is surprisingly excellent
“Delivery was fast. I was so excited to finally be able to chop things with ease. Ive used this knife to chop chicken wings, chicken meat, carrots and harder vegetables. It was also a good size for mincing things up. Like it says, when you chop the food chunks dont stick to the knife. But mincing garlic got stuck probably cause its very fine bits. Amazing knife. ”– Cassandra, 28th December 2018

Present for a friend
“I bought this knife as my friends first professional Chefs knife and all I can say is wow.
Sandoku Knife 17cm
“The word "perfect" is the most appropriate word to describe this Santoku knife. It is sharp and beautiful.
My first professional knife
“I am a chef and about 9 - 10 months ago I set out to find a set of knives that had quality, comfort and style and I looked at many many different brands.
Quality Quality Quality
“I have already owned the Santoku 17cm knife for at least 4 years, the one recently purchased was a gift for my daughter. The knife it still as good now as it was when originally bought and only needs sharpening every few months. The balanced weight of the knife is perfect, as is the shape of the handle. I never wash my Robert Welch knives in the dishwasher and they look as good as new. I own the RW Signature black and chrome knife block (complete with my own choice of RW knives) and absolutely recommend these knives - for value for money, quality, ease of use, longevity and looks.”– Sandra Brown, 5th October 2017
