Top 3 Japanese Knives
Japanese knives are a must have for any serious (or simply enthusiastic) chef. There are many different types of Japanese knives and they vary in terms of appearance, purpose, production, and material. Santoku knives are one of the most common Japanese knives in Europe and they are an excellent choice because they are designed for the ‘three virtues’ (dicing, slicing and mincing) and they do all three tasks very effectively. These knives tend to have flat blades, they are lighter and thinner than European chefs knives, and they are designed to stop food sticking to the knife.
There are many different types of Japanese knives on the market, but we’ve managed to find the very best. If you would like to find out more about our top three Japanese knives then read on for the buyers guide!

These are all excellent Japanese knives which will have you slicing, dicing and mincing in no time. We would, however, like to especially recommend the ZELITE INFINITY Santoku Knife because it has been made out of 67 layer high carbon stainless steel, it is anti-rust, anti-stick and anti-stain, it is multi-functional and can be used for practically any meal, it is beautiful to look at and is fully decorated, it will give you great results with minimal resistance, and best of all it comes with an amazing lifetime warranty which will protect you against defects! A lifetime warranty is a rare but good sign as it shows that the manufacturer believes this knife can basically never fail, plus it also comes with a money back guarantee so if you are not completely happy with your knife (even though it sounds like you will be!) then you can just get your money back!
