Order Now. Quantities are limited. Online Only

Designed and engineered by Robert Welch Designs in the English Cotswolds, this Signature santoku knife (Japanese chef's knife) offers the home chef a unique value with a new hybrid of European and Asian cutting-edge technologies. Its special blade slices, dices and minces with clean repetitive action, allowing the food to fall away from the blade. Rated in the top 1% of all brand knives by CATRA (Cutlery and Allied Trades Research Association) for their initial sharpness and edge retention, Signature knives have won major international design awards including the "Highest Possible Grade Achieved" by the Craft Guild of Chefs. Fully forged and robotically engineered, Signature knives feature German stainless steel blades—each uniquely curved to optimize the cutting action for each knife's function. Engineered using World Edge Geometry™, blades are honed, hardened and tempered to razor sharpness with a precision 15-degree edge angle that cuts and slices effortlessly; full-tang blades extend the entire length from tip to heel as if it's custom-fit to the hand.

Designer Robert Welch

United Kingdom

Robert Welch’s career got off to a humble start in the beautiful English Cotswolds, in a tiny dorm-style room with a bed and a drawing board in an old silk mill in the market town of Chipping Campden. The British designer was greatly influenced by the functionality and clean lines of Scandinavian modernism during his years at the Royal College of Arts in the mid 1950s, and Welch went on to become an iconic name for thoughtfully designed, affordable stainless steel flatware. His designs have been collected by major museums around the world.

After Robert Welch’s death in 2000, two of his children, Rupert and Alice, took the reins of the company, which now occupies the entire top floor of that same 200-year-old stone building. Today, even as Robert Welch designers work in a setting steeped in history, they use new technology such as 3D printers to carefully hone their product designs. With a miniscule adjustment to a curve here or a handle thickness there, they create elegant utensils with just the right weight and balance to feel perfectly natural in the hand. “Design was a part of every day when Rupert and I were little,” says Alice Welch. “Dad used to bring home prototypes for us to test and review; you never knew what was going to appear next.”

Robert Welch ® Signature 5.5 Santoku Knife is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect everyday knife This is my second knife. I had to leave one behind when I relocated and just had to buy another. Couldn't live without. It's a perfect knife for everyday cooking. Its sharp blade speeds up chopping and prepping.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Go to knife I bought this knife about 4 months ago and it is my go-to knife. My only problem is that the initial sharpness dulled within a couple of months. The front and back points are still pretty sharp but the rest of the knife requires a "sawing" motion to get through my veggies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knife to know you I've had this knife for a year and a half now and it has made prepping and cooking a breeze. The handle is rounded and smooth making it extremely comfortable to hold in your hand especially when you have a lot of food to prep. The blade is very well balanced and exceptionally sharp. We have a nice ceramic knife that I thought was unbeatable... until we got this. I use this to do just about everything, from dicing veggies to coring a pineapple. You won't regret the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this knife I absolutely love this knife. Used to be a Shun fan but having used the Robert Welch Chef knife for the past year I am a convert. Recently bought this gorgeous addition and it did not disappoint. Obviously the style, deisgn of these knives is unique and chic but also slot into the natural shape of the hand. For those who love spending time in the kitchen, I would highly recommend the Robert Welch knives. Knife sharpener on my Christmas list!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Favorite I received this Santoku knife as a gift and it has quickly become my "go to" knife for chopping and slicing. The handle design, size and weight keep the blade balanced, comfortable and really fun to use. After experiencing the quality of Robert Welch, I realized that the other knives in my block need some serious upgrading. Not many kitchen items are so good that I feel compelled to write a review, but this one definitely has me impressed.
