Every year Germany’s Messer Magazin (German knife magazine) features a knife of the year award in the following categories: fixed knife, pruning knife and kitchen knife. The readers of the magazine choose their favourite from all three categories. For the latest awards, in the kitchen knife category there was a choice of 14 knives from well-known international manufacturers. The Santoku from the new Red Spirit series from Friedrich Dick won through with the readers and was awarded third place.

The knives of this series are designed for uncompromising sharpness. The blades are ground extremely finely and the cutting edge polished. The knives are easy to handle and lead to an exact cut. The material to be cut is neither crushed nor broken so that flavours are preserved.

The round shaped, Asian-style handle of the Santoku lies perfectly in the hand while fulfilling all ergonomic requirements of professionals as well as ambitious amateur chefs – a very important advantage for intensive usage.
