For Slicing, Dicing, Mincing, Filleting and Chopping of meat, fish and vegetables.Normal length – 180mm to 300mm.Tip: With the edge flat for about 1/3rd of the blade – 210 mm or longer the knife-edge profile is the same as a 180mm Santoku from the handle to tip and the same as a 180mm Gyuto from the tip to handle – so essentially a 180mm Gyuto & 180mm Santoku in one knife.
