Lakeland Select-Grip Japanese Steel Santoku Knife 12cm Blade 5 "A very proficient little workhorse." Marie Bartlett 13 November 2018 A fabulous knife! Well balanced, comfortable in the hand and very, very sharp. It holds its edge remaining sharp for a long time. When I bought it online I was concerned that the blade might be a little small as I was originally looking for a slightly longer bladed Santoku Knife. However, it is a really handy size, perfect for chopping and slicing with ease. I use it daily in food prep.
