The Global Classic 5" Hollow Ground Santoku Knife is a classic Japanese cooking knife ideal for making thin slices. The hollow ground blade creates air pockets between the blade and food, preventing slices from sticking to the knife, for cleaner and more efficient slices.
All Global Classic Knives are crafted in Japan in a single factory using artisanal techniques and the most modern blade technology. The blades, made of a strong proprietary high carbon stainless steel blend, Chromova 18, are sharpened to a 15 degree angle for incredible precision and a smooth cut. The strength of the unique Global steel makes this incredibly fine, thin point possible, and the value of this edge is evident immediately.
The handle of each Global Classic knife is filled with Japanese sand perfectly measured to precisely balance the weight of the blade. The signature Global dimple pattern on the ergonomically-shaped handle provides a secure grip for control and precision. The handle is seamlessly joined to the blade, making the knife easy to clean and very hygienic.
