MAC knives offer superior performance at great prices. This MAC Professional Santoku knife is a popular well-balanced design with bolster. Features high carbon Chrome Molybdenum blade with Vanadium. Extremely sharp and durable. The blade is slightly softer than the SBK series which has Tungsten in its alloy. Not dishwasher safe.
Iím increasingly skeptical of the value of a Santoku,particularly if you have a large kitchen. That said,this is my wifeís favorite knife. Fit and finish are really nice. The blade is about 2 mm thick at the bolster. It stays sharp for-bloody-ever. When it does dull,itís super-easy to resharpen either on oil or waterstones. Be aware,though. The scalloped sides do not keep things from sticking. Look nice,though

Scary sharp,nice to hold,i hope I can keep it cutting as nice as when new!
I have been a Mac owner for a decade. That being said,I can produce an edge on this knife that I would put up against any Masamoto,Watanabe or Shig! This thing destroys tomatoes,as paper thin as possible!
Great knife,great quality I would recommended it to any one that like to cook
I am a professional chef and this knife holds up to everyday use. I have a forschner diamond steel I use every day and a wet stone once a week. This knife holds an incredibly sharp edge and is easy to sharpen. It does not have the fashionable appeal of a shun or other Damascus blade but is just as sharper or sharper (assuming you take good care of it. Great knife,great value.
