All cooks have specific tools that work for them. That’s one of the reasons Shun makes so many different types of kitchen knives, so you can always find the ones that work best for you. The Shun Premier 5.5-in. Santoku is a case in point. Smaller than our full-sized santoku, this one is in-between size and weight, perfect for most medium-sized kitchen tasks.
Slicing baby carrots, dicing shallots, cutting butter or chocolate–all are excellent jobs for the Shun Premier 5.5-in. Santoku. If you have smaller hands or simply prefer a compact knife, this one is sure to become one of your favorite kitchen go-to knives.
