The Global SAI-04 nakiri is a vegetable chopping knife for specialists
It has a long flat blade designed to get a clean cut when the knife cuts down onto the board. 
It is quite a heavy knife and suitable for long hours in the kitchen. With its long 19cm blade and the stretched handle of the SAI series, the SAI-04 knife is the largest vegetable chopper Global produce.


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.

The slightly longer curved ergonomic handle provides a comfortable grip and features 7 signature black dots which represent the 7 noble virtues of the Samurai’s code of honour; Integrity, Courage, Compassion, Respect, Honesty, Honour and Loyalty. 

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.
