Forged knives are hand crafted and offer greater strength and durability as well as better balance, a heavier feel and lasting sharpness compared to stamped cutlery. The tang of a forged knife always extends into the handle to improve the balance and ergonomics.

This is the first Santoku knife I have owned. I find that I go to it for many inbetween jobs - too large for the paring knife, too small for the 9" chef's knife. It has been great with fruits and vegetables.
