The Santoku Hollow Ground Designed by F.A. Porsche has a number of hollow ovals into one or both sides of the blade. This helps to prevent food from sticking to the blade and helps the knife cut more efficiently. This type of knife is commonly used by Asian chefs but is gaining popularity among Western chefs because of the precision and how easy it is to handle this type of blade.
All Chroma Type 301 kitchen knives feature Japanese 301 stainless steel that’s ground on both sides of the blade to present an extra-sharp edge upon its very first use. As an added benefit, Japanese 301 steel is able to maintain edge sharpness longer than any other type of steel. Here’s how the Chroma cleaver surpasses the competition. For starters, it’s lightweight. Second, it’s a well-balanced knife. If you’re puzzled as to where to place your hand to ensure perfect knife balance, for a clue look no further than the small, raised metal knob on the side of the knife. It marks where the blade and handle interset, helping you find the perfect grip for maximum knife control. Finally, its "V" shape feels super comfortable in the hand so you can work long periods of time without your hand muscles growing tired.
