Where to buy...


G-56 7" Santoku

I think this knife is fine, but I wouldn't buy it as my main knife. Just not practical enough due to the curved tip and the hollow grind adds no value.

I've had this knife in my kit for a little over a decade. It's like a bassist. It's useful and it definitely is nice to have, but it's not the lead singer you count on to get the job done.

  • Basically a G-2 in a different shape.
  • Far cheaper than the G-2.
  • Hollow grind is not super effective.
  • Round tip isn't as practical as the sharp tip of a chef's knife.
