An excellent all-around, all-purpose knife combining the features of a chef's knife and that of a slicer into one. The modestly-curved blade allows some rocking of the knife back and forth for mincing, chopping, and dicing. The perpendicular, scalloped grooves minimize friction, and, thus, improve separation without shredding, making it ideal for cutting thinner slices of vegetables and meats while retaining much of their juices. The combination of a razor-sharp blade and good weight distribution makes most knife work effortless. Its only detraction is some grooves are not uniformly spaced from the cutting edge of the blade. I don't see this phenomenon shown on product pictures, but on my knife, the grooves are closer to the edge (at least on the left face) as the blade begins to taper towards the tip. This can potentially reduce the life expectancy of the knife if the blade is to ever undergo enough Read More

I have wanted a Santoku knife for a long time . I love to cook and the average knives I had at home just weren't cutting it !!!! Literally . I found the Mercer 7" Santoku knife . .. The price was right , I took a chance and I could not be happier . Slicing , chopping and prep work is a breeze . The blade is excellent quality as well as the handle that feels great in my hand as well as being the perfect weight .
My first impression of this knife is that it sits very nicely in the hand and has a great weight to it. It has an extremely sharp edge which after a few weeks of use has held its edge well.
Just purchased this knife for my son in law as part of his holiday gift. He loved it and has said he finds it to be a very high quality knife. Glad I purchased it for him!
I love how this knife fits in your hand, even with small hands like mine. The blade comes very sharp and with everyday use, it stays sharp for a long time. I would recommend it.
This knife works well, and the handle is more comfortable than some other knives in this price range. It's a good size and a good deal.
This knife comes sharp. It is well balanced and the handle keeps it from slipping in the hand during use. Overall, a great knife for everyday use.
My husband loves this knife. It is his go to when he needs to cut steaks or chicken. Nicely balanced and easy to handle. Great buy
It's my favorite knife of all our knives! It's very versatile and feels sturdy - I'm always reaching for this one! We've been using it for over a year now and it still works great every day.
This is well made and durable. The blade is firm and sharp and it cuts easily. It is dishwasher safe and it is long lasting.
Mercer in my opinion make the best chefs knives for overall value, by that I mean they are of the highest quality and priced at an affordable price point. This santoku 7 inch with a granton edge is very sharp great for all kinds of prep work and has an excellent grippy santoprene handle
One of my most used knives. This is a real workhorse. Holds edge well. Only hand wash, this is not something you want to run through your dishwasher.
Our chef has used many knives and this is the one he repeatedly asks us to order time and time again. You can spend more but the Mercer line makes a great knife. We highly recommend them and they are the only brands we use in our kitchen.
One of the better knives that Mercer Culinary has came out with. It is a great balanced knife. I will purchase this knife again. Love the forged blade as well.
No complaints whatsoever. Easy to keep sharp, very comfortable to grip and use, and outstandingly sharp right out of the package. I've especially been enjoying the ability to rock the knife slightly, and it really speeds up chopping herbs/garlic. After using it every day for over a year, I'm wondering if they left off a digit from the price, as this knife easily outdoes knives many time the cost. It's truly a great deal, and would be a great deal at twice the price!
I love the non-slip grip of this handle. I’m not a professional chef, just a home baker, and this makes me feel more at ease when working with cutlery.
This has become my favorite knife in the kitchen. It was a great deal compared to other sources charging quite a bit more for this knife. It has great balance and it's a light knife,
Great Mercer Santoku kinife. Mercer are some of the best knives we have ever used. Very sharp and hold their edge. This is a good quality product.
As a culinary student, we are supplied with mercer cutlery, so when I found a Santoku made by Mercer, I jumped for it. It works great! Super sharp, yet is light enough to do vegetable work. Great hybrid of a Japanese and European knife.
