BUNMEI Santoku 18cm
The Global SAI-03 Santoku 19cm knife is a large, powerful knife best suited for the 3 ways of Sanoku, namely: Slicing, Dicing and Mincing! The SAI-03 is one of the heavier Santoku knives in the Global range which makes it great for chopping vegetables. It has quite a flat profile, but can be used for slicing meats as well. As the knife is quite heavy, it is a lot stronger than some of the other Global knives and will take a lot of heavy use. A smaller version of the SAI Santoku knife is available, the SAI-M03 which is 13.5cm and is excellent for smaller vegetables.
Global's SAI knives feature a 3-ply stainless steel blade, with the core being made from Global's unique ultra-hard Cromova18 Stainless Steel and the two outer layers of 18/10 steel for added strength and corrosion resistance. Each SAI blade has an individually hammered pattern design on the blades to create hollow air pockets that reduce drag, allowing the blade to glide through food without sticking.. The seven dots on the handles of the SAI range are designed to represent the seven noble virtues of the Japanese Samurai’s code of honour: Integrity, Courage, Compassion, Respect, Honesty, Honour and Loyalty.
