The SAI-01 Gyuto 21cm Global SAI is a true multipurpose knife. Its shape makes it a classic gyuto knife, ideal for all kinds of veggie cutting.
On the other hand, its long narrow blade makes it suitable for carving even slices of your favourite joint.
It is quite a substantial knife with a lot of presence and is best suited towards larger cuts of meat, or vegetables of all kind and size.
Internationally acclaimed for their precise and seamless construction, Global SAI knives are lauded for their sleek design and distinct aesthetic. SAI is considered as Global’s premium knife range with superior cutting performance and edge retention. Designed by renowned industrial designer Komin Yamada, Global SAI pays homage to the Samurai tradition of sword making.
Ice-hardened Cromova 18 steel constitutes the 58 Rockwell core of the knife which is clad with a layer of SUS410 softer steel and then hammered for a beautiful nonstick finish.
The blades themselves are sharpened to a 12.5° edge, which has been mirror-polished by hand for extra-long lasting sharpness. The beautiful hammered finish applied to the patented CROMOVA 18 is not just for looks, it produces air pockets which help release food while cutting, giving the blade non-stick properties.
Unique convex edge of the blade makes cuts smoother, requiring less energy.
As with all Global Knives it is hollow and weighted; the handle has an ergonomic thumb rest for a smooth, efficient cutting motion and comfortable grip.
