Global Classic 7" Hollow-Ground Santoku

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. Blade is hand forged 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.

This knife is beautiful to look at and a dream to use. I used to use an 8" and 10" Chefs knife for all my chopping, slicing and dicing NO LONGER! This is my go to knife for everything. So comfortable and less dangerous than a cumbersome Chefs knife. My daughter bought me mine. I bought this one as a House Warming Gift. The recipient agrees with my opinion and this is now his "GO to Knife" I fully recommend this knife.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Sharpness, Weight
