    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 carving knife combines an ergonomic handle with a triple-layered steel blade whose razor-sharp edge makes quick work of carving roast meats and poultry into uniform slices. 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 a user-friendly organic design with an individually hand-hammered blade that makes 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. 8 1/4"-long blade; 6"-long handle; 8.5 oz. Made in Japan.
