The GLOBAL Santoku knife with hollow edge 18 cm (G-48) has been developed especially for the preparation of Sushi and Sashimi. Furthermore it is ideal for finest cutting works in the kitchen. The hollow edge of this knife creates pockets of air which prevent thin or soft slices from sticking to the blade.
GLOBAL knives are perfectly balanced, thanks to a sophisticated system. To balance their knives, GLOBAL's expertly designed hollow handles are filled with just the right amount of sand to counter the weight of the blade. The stainless-steel handle ensures a safe grip.
GLOBAL generally uses Cromova 18 stainless steel with a hardness of 58 HRC. These knives are crafted to professional standards and are suitable for intensive use.
The blade is ground to a narrow grinding angle of 15 - 17 grade, typical for Japanese knives. This renders this knife extremely sharp.
