The 7″ Shun Sora Hollow-Ground Santoku knife is perfect for chopping, slicing, mincing, and more. Featuring a proprietary composite blade technology that brings together a VG10 cutting edge, clad with one layer of stainless steel on each side to create a san mai edge, with a mirror-polished Japanese 420J stainless steel upper, and boasting a razor-sharp 16-degree cutting angle on each side of the blade, Sora puts all the high-performance technology where it’s needed most: the cutting edge. The hollow-ground feature makes tiny air pockets which help with food release from the blade. Each handle is made to provide balance and easy maintenance, with a tacky-when-wet surface that’s ideal for use around juicy fruits, vegetables, and meat.
