Santoku Knife: The Santoku knife is a Japanese cooking knife that is often designed with a scalloped blade like this one. In Japanese, santoku means “three virtues,” which is fitting for this utility knife because it is particularly good at doing 3 things — chopping, slicing, and mincing. The scalloped detail makes it easier to remove chopped food from the blade’s sharp edge.
Slice, Dice, And Chop: This dicing tool is perfect for cutting up just about anything. Use this knife to slice vegetables for a veggie tray, to chop onions for a pot roast, or to mince whole heads of garlic. No matter the slicing or chopping job, this knife is up to the task. This knife is a must-have, multi-use tool.

Gunter Wilhelm Hassle-Free lifetime warranty covers manufacturing defects (materials and workmanship).
A dull knife which requires sharpening is not a manufacturing defect, but basic maintenance.
Rust spots might appear in cases that the knife was placed in a dishwasher or left in water for a long period of time. To remove any rust spot, please use a Stainless Steel polisher cream/past such as Bar Keepers Friend or similar.
Woodblocks, sharpening tools, and blade protectors are not covered by our lifetime warranty policy since they are subject to normal and natural attrition.
