Why is it Special?
Timeless Italian quality products for your home. Collaborating with internationally recognized designers such as Michael Graves, Philippe Starck and Richard Sapper Alessi has produced some of the absolute best iconic designs in the world. This knife is no exception!
Designed in 2005 by Stefano Giovannoni, the “Mami” collection of kitchen knives is back in the Alessi catalogue with the addition of special types. Made entirely from stainless steel, Mami knives satisfy all food preparation needs. With blades that are highly effective at slicing, cutting and filleting that complement the smooth lines and rounded shapes of Mami handles.
In Japanese, "Santoku" means “three virtues” and, as its name suggests, this kitchen knife is ideal for three different operations: cutting, filleting and de-boning. This special knife can be used with meat, fish and vegetables. The extremely practical Santoku knife is ideal for all these tasks thanks to a broad blade that provides excellent balance and ensures superb manageability during use. The rounded handle is hollow inside and ensures a comfortable and practical grip.
Versatile, practical and easy to handle, the Santoku knife is an essential tool in any kitchen.
