The Global Sai 9-3/4 inch chef's knife is the longest chef's knife in the Global Sai cutlery line. It's a perfect knife for large cutting jobs involving big bunches of greens and other vegetables. The long-lasting blade edge has improved resistance against rust and other damage thanks to Global's new 3-layer construction that uses a core of Cromova 18 stainless steel. It's also hand-hammered, so it looks great and helps keep food from sticking to the side of the blade. Global cutlery is made in Japan and has a lifetime warranty with normal use and care.
