The Japanese counterpart to the classic chef’s knife – a typical Japanese all-rounder. The FVR Zeitlos Santoku knife catches the eye with its traditional Japanese design, handmade in Solingen, Germany.

Santoku stands for “three virtues” – attributed to fish, meat and vegetables, and a reference to the characteristic of an all-purpose knife. The FVR Zeitlos Santoku knife lives up to its name and allows any chef to cut wafer-thin slices with ease. At the same time, its slightly rounded blade is ideal for chopping nuts and herbs.

The flat top edge forms a line with the handle, while the wide blade, made of German X50 CrMoV15 blade steel, protrudes below the handle. This gives a lot of space for the fingers under the handle. This ensures a very special cutting result.


  • Hand-wash with warm water. Dry immediately
  • Do not place in dishwasher
  • Avoid bleach or citrus extracts (cleaning agents)
  • Handle should be oiled as needed using food safe mineral oil.

    Beautiful. Love the knives. They stay sharp for a long time. Very easy to sharpen, I have several other knives which I’ve never been able to sharpen. Thank you FVR.

    Have a set of 3. Nice real wood handle (not plastic). My handle gets more rustic with use (vs. scratched like some of my plastic knives). Fast delivery, great service.
