Known in Japan as a gyuto, this light, nimble knife is ideal for slicing meat and fish, and it performs beautifully on vegetables, too. The blade is thinner than a traditional chef's knife but still offers plenty of knuckle clearance when cutting.

The Higo design is considered Japan’s first pocket knife, and we think it makes a great gift for anyone you’d describe as "handy." Maybe a Father’s Day gift for your hunting and fishing dad?

At around 50% off, this knife is a fantastic value. It’s perfect for chopping, slicing and dicing, and the indentations on the blade’s sides are designed to make uniform cuts and minimize sticking. A santoku knife is a kitchen staple, and you’ll wonder how you ever lived without one.
