Marks by Mundial cutlery is made from high-carbon Japanese steel, ensuring greater durability and the highest edge retention under the most demanding conditions. Ergonomic non-slip grip handles assure extreme comfort for long term use. The 7" Santoku is our most popular style knife as you'll soon be able to see why. The granton edge allows you to make quick work out of chopped vegetables keeping them from sticking to the blade. NSF approved, these knife handles are treated with sanitized antimicrobial protection, which protects them from bacterial growth. The Marks series of products meet all international safety and health standards.
