BUNMEI Santoku 18cm
The Global SAI-04 is a specialist vegetable chopping knife. It has a long, flat blade designed to make a clean cut when the knife cuts down through the vegetable and onto the board. It is a relatively heavy knife and suitable for lots of work in the kitchen. With a longer (19cm) blade and the stretched handle of the SAI series, the SAI-04 knife is the largest vegetable chopping knife that Global produces. There is also a smaller version, the SAI-M06, which home cooks may find more manageable because it is 15cm.
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.
