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. Stainless-steel storage block's angled design helps protect the blades, and its nonslip rubber base anchors the block securely on a countertop. Block has slots for nine knives and a honing steel. Made in Japan. 5-Piece Set includes: 3 1/2" paring knife. 5 3/4" utility knife. 6 3/4" serrated utility knife. 7 1/2" chef’s knife. Nine-slot storage block including spot for honing steel.

    Shun Classic Hollow-Edge Santoku, 7"
    Santoku means “three virtues” in Japanese, and this knife gets its name for the three strengths it demonstrates in the kitchen: cutting vegetables, thin-boned meats, and fish. Many cooks reach for their santoku at least as often as their chef’s knife. This santoku’s slightly curved blade enables you to employ a rocking motion while cutting. A thinner blade makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European–style knives. Plus, oval indentions on the sides of blade reduce friction, ensuring clean, uniform cuts with minimal sticking. Shun Classic’s tasteful and contemporary design features a beautiful Damascus-clad blade and D-shaped ebony pakkawood handle. Behind the knife’s beauty is function: a razor-sharp blade offering precision performance. Shun’s VG-MAX steel core—known for its incredible edge retention—is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then bead-blasted, revealing the woodgrain pattern of the steel, which allows the blade to slide easily through food. The result is a knife that’s sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold. NSF-certified knife meets the high-level safety standards for professional kitchens. 7" blade. Hand wash only. Limited lifetime warranty. Handcrafted in Seki City, Japan. Free sharpening on all Shun cutlery for as long as you own it. Click for details

    This two-piece set of carbon steel knives pairs Wüsthof’s legendary craftsmanship with heritage styling for an heirloom-quality set that will become the centerpiece of any collection. Forged using traditional techniques and over 50 distinct manufacturing steps, each blade boasts an exceedingly fine microstructure that allows it to be honed to a scalpel-sharp, easy-to-maintain edge. Long a favorite of professional chefs, carbon steel knives develop a patina with use. This patina helps protect the blade and lends each knife a distinct, one-of-a-kind appearance. Handsome rosewood handles are secured to the full tang with three brass rivets for exceptional balance and comfort while cutting. Each set includes a versatile chef’s knife that’s perfect for a wide variety of tasks and a deft, nimble paring knife that’s ideal when precision is required. Manufacturer: Wüsthof. Includes: 9" chef’s, 4" paring, oil for maintenance. Material: Carbon steel, rosewood, brass. Care: Hand wash only. Clean after each use and dry immediately after using.

Dimensions: 9" blade, 14½" total length (chef’s); 4" blade, 8" total length (paring) Warranty: Lifetime warranty. Made in Germany.
