Global SAI has two vegetable knives in its range. The SAI-04 is a specialist vegetable chopping knife. 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. It has a smaller brother the SAI-M06, which home users will find a bit more manageable as it has only a 15cm length.
Global SAI sit as Global’s premium knife range with superior cutting performance and edge retention. Designed by renowned industrial designer Komin Yamada, Global SAI is the first new line from Global in 25 years and pays homage to the Samurai tradition of sword making. 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. The handles as with all Global Knives are hollow and weighted; the handle has an ergonomic thumb rest for a smooth, efficient cutting motion and comfortable grip. The blades themselves are sharpened to a 12.5-degree 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.
