The Messermeister Mu Bamboo 6.5" Santoku Knife, also known as a Japanese Chefs Knife, is a wide blade knife with an overall thinner spine and taper than a French or German style Chefs Knife. The thin taper (or blade thickness) is lengthened to give it maximum precision when slicing. The Santoku Knife is one of the worlds most popular knives. The spine runs parallel to the relatively flat cutting edge, which has a bolsterless heel and only curves near the tip to create a broad bladed knife similar in shape to a cleaver.
