I've been thinking about getting another Santoku for myself. We have a Henckels Four Star II Santoku that my wife absolutely loves and is probably the most used knife by her.
Knives are a true weakness of mine in addition to smoked meat (they do go well together) and my favorite company just realeased to new run of their Santoku -
. I've been looking for a reason to cave.
They are not cheap however, but I can say that after the first use, you soon forgot about the price!
