Shorter and more nimble than an ordinary chef’s knife, this versatile santoku is perfect for the whole lot from dicing onions to julienning carrots or smashing cloves of garlic and features a hollow-ground edge that helps prevent sticking. Designed by the legendary bladesmiths at Global, the hand made Ni cutlery collection offers the state of the art performance and precision craftsmanship for which Global is famous-all with a new, innovative design that’s engineered to feel like an extension of the hand. FEATURES: New blade geometry balances graceful, brand new design with precision and durability for the ultimate in performance on the cutting board. Forged from a single piece of stainless steel for the ultimate in strength, durability and performance. Lightweight G18 CROMOVA steel takes and holds a lasting edge-even on the ultra-sharp 12.5° angle used in Japanese cutlery. Rounded spine ensures comfort even as the use of a professional pinch grip.
