The MAC Santoku Knife is a reliably great everyday chef knife for all entry levels, from occasional home cook to professional chef. In fact, Thomas Keller and Eric Ripert are MAC Knife afficionados! What's all the fuss about? Made in Japan with a 6-1/2" inch blade forged from molybdenum steel (the same metal used to make samurai swords back in the day), the MAC Santoku knife is sturdy, well-balanced, and made to handle all means of slicing, dicing, and mincing.This knife will last you a lifetime (with proper handling and regular sharpening, natch), so please, for the love of god, bid adieu to that Ikea knife and say hello to MAC, the knife.

Our resident knife expert, Chef Kuni (sushi chef and Kayoko's dad), says that this knife is ideal to cut anything – meat, vegetables, and tofu. He says, "This is the best knife to use so you don't cut yourself." Recommended for home kitchen use.

MAC knives have a thin blade so cuts are effortless. Instead of using force when cutting, the blade does all the work. The lightweight, ergonomic design of MAC knives also reduce fatigue while slicing and dicing.

We know that Eric Ripert, Thomas Keller, and sushi chef Kunio use MAC knives, but we didn't know MAC knives could do this! (Don't try this at home.)
