Global Classic 5" Hollow Ground Santoku Knife

Global's award-winning knives are made to the exacting standards of Japanese professional chefs. A versatile knife for chopping and slicing, the santoku combines the benefits of a cleaver and a chef's knife. Indentations on the blade edge reduce drag and minimize sticking. Stamped blade is made of exceptionally hard Cromova 18 high-carbon stainless steel, ice tempered and hardened to resist corrosion. Prominent 1/4" edge is visible to the naked eye and ground straight to a point rather than beveled resulting in impressive sharpness and edge retention. Hollow-ground indentations along the blade increase efficiency and decrease sticking. Stainless-steel handle is seamlessly constructed and textured for a good grip. Crafted to professional standards, this knife is lightweight yet perfectly balanced.

Storing Santouku Knives
I actually have several of these knives which I also love & I store by wrapping in W-S dish cloths and then placing in my cutlery drawer. Has worked beautifully for years!
