This curved peeling knife from the Global SAI collection is primarily used for peeling fruits and vegetables. It also handles a full range of smaller cutting tasks, such as coring, pitting, and removing blemishes. Use it for making tourne cuts in carrots, potatoes, and other hard vegetables. This peeling knife is also well-suited to decorative cuts and detail work.
The Global SAI collection was created by industrial designer Komin Yamada in honor of the Samurai sword making tradition. The blade is constructed from a CROMOVA 18 steel core, surrounded by layers of 18/8 stainless steel for added strength and stain-resistance. The blade is ice tempered and hardened for superior edge retention. The 12.5-degree cutting edge is mirror-polished by hand, with a convex edge that stays sharper longer. The blade is hand-hammered to create small hollows that form air pockets when cutting, so food falls away from the blade and does not stick. CROMOVA 18 stainless steel is proprietary to Global. It includes a higher percentage of carbon than Western knives for greater strength and durability. It also includes a higher percentage of chromium than Western knives for greater stain resistance. Vanadium offers durability and wear resistance, and molybdenum offers hardness and corrosion resistance. The ergonomic, stainless steel knife handle is filled with sand to ensure it is perfectly weighted and balanced. The handle features a thumb recess for a safe and secure grip, and seven dots to represent the seven virtues of the Samurai.
