Legendary industrial designer Komin Yamada brings a new age of innovation to Global cutlery with Sai – individually hand-hammered knives with one-of-a-kind character. Unifying function and design, this distinctive Japanese chef's knife combines an ergonomic handle with a triple-layered steel blade whose razor-sharp edge is ideal for a wide variety of everyday kitchen tasks, including mincing, dicing, chopping and slicing.
  • The first new cutlery line produced by Global in more than 30 years, Sai blends the Japanese company's tradition of craftsmanship with modern technological advancements.
  • Designer Komin Yamada pairs user-friendly organic designs with individually hand-hammered blades that make each knife unique.
  • The knives combine three layers of steel: a core of patented, ultra-hard Cromova 18 Sanso stainless-steel alloy and two outer layers of more flexible 18/8 steel for added strength and resistance to rust.
  • Professional-quality blades are ice-hardened and tempered to increase hardness, resist corrosion and maintain long-lasting sharpness.
  • Each blade is hand-hammered to create hollow air pockets that reduce drag, allowing the blade to glide through food without sticking.
  • 12.5-degree blade edge is mirror-polished by hand for exceptionally long-lasting sharpness.
  • The perfectly balanced handle has an ergonomic thumb rest for a smooth, efficient cutting motion and steady, comfortable grip.
  • Iconic dots on the knife's hollow handle represent seven traditional Japanese virtues from the Samurai code of honor.
  • Made in Japan.
