Knife has different angle for use. Western-style knives (chef’s, boning, and carving) tend to have larger angles (17-25 degrees) for general durability. This angle is fine enough to create clean cuts in meats and vegetables but strong enough to maintain chopping performance for many cuts.
Eastern-style knives (santuko, sushi) tend to have smaller angles (12-17 degrees) for more precise slicing. These low angles result in the least amount of material displacement when slicing but have significantly less material supporting the edge, meaning they are more prone to chipping and breaking.
