The Global Ukon GU-04 Santoku Knife is a versatile all-purpose knife that can chop, slice and dice most vegetables, meat and fish. The word Santoku means ‘three qualities’ in Japanese and some would say this relates this to the three key prepping techniques mentioned above. The fluted edge on the blade creates little air pockets when you chop, to reduce friction and sticking of foods

The name 'UKON' has many positive connotations in Japanese legend. Our favourite use of the word lies in the expression 'Tachibana No Ukon' referring to the Mandarin Tree that was symbolically planted on the right-hand side of the Imperial Palace in Kyoto. It was said to balance the Cherry Blossom Tree on the left-hand side, known as the 'Sakura No Sakon'. Together they replaced the Samurai Guards who had until then protected the Emperor, but who were deemed no longer necessary during times of peace.

In true GLOBAL tradition, the knife is constructed from the best Stainless Steel material and the UKON series features thicker blades to enhance performance. UKON knives are subject to even more precise grinding and finishing work, making them 10 percent sharper out of the box. The knives are designed with an ambidextrous thumb rest that sits closer to the blade for added control and efficiency. The underside of the handle features GLOBAL's trademark indentations, making UKON knives extremely comfortable to hold.
