  • Legendary industrial designer Komin Yamada brings a new age of innovation to Global cutlery with Sai—individually hand-hammered knives with one-of-a-kind character. Unifying function and design, this distinctive Japanese santoku combines an ergonomic handle with a triple-layered steel blade that combines characteristics of a Western chef’s knife and a cleaver.

    • Great for everything from chopping herbs to slicing and dicing meats and veggies, this knife's razor-sharp blade makes it the tool of choice for precisely cutting thin, delicate slices of sashimi.
    • The first new cutlery line produced by Global in more than 30 years, Sai blends the Japanese company’s tradition of craftsmanship with modern technological advancements.
    • Designer Komin Yamada pairs user-friendly organic designs with individually hand-hammered blades that make each knife unique.
    • The knives combine three layers of steel: a core of patented, ultra-hard Cromova 18 Sanso stainless-steel alloy and two outer layers of more flexible 18/8 steel for added strength and resistance to rust.
    • Professional-quality blades are ice-hardened and tempered to increase hardness, resist corrosion and maintain long-lasting sharpness.
    • Each blade is hand-hammered to create hollow air pockets that reduce drag, allowing the blade to glide through food without sticking.
    • 12.5-degree blade edge is mirror-polished by hand for exceptionally long-lasting sharpness.
    • The perfectly balanced handle has an ergonomic thumb rest for a smooth, efficient cutting motion and steady, comfortable grip.
    • Iconic dots on the knife's hollow handle represent seven traditional Japanese virtues from the Samurai code of honor.
    • Made in Japan.
