The SAI-02 is Global SAI's carving knife and is perfectly suited for the task. It has a long narrow blade suitable for carving even slices of your favourite joint. It is quite a substantial knife with a lot of presence and is best suited towards larger cuts of meat. The knife has quite a similar profile to the chef's knives and can be used as a multi-purpose slicing knife.
The blades themselves are sharpened to a 12.5-degree edge, which has been mirror-polished by hand for extra-long lasting sharpness. The handles as with all Global Knives are hollow and weighted; the handle has an ergonomic thumb rest for a smooth, efficient cutting motion and comfortable grip. The seven dots on the handles are designed to represent the seven noble virtues of the Samurai’s code of honour: Integrity, Courage, Compassion, Respect, Honesty, Honour and Loyalty. Global SAI sit as Global's premium knife range with superior cutting performance and edge retention.
