About Global – G46 Santoku 18cm (Made in Japan)
The G-46 is a full sized Santoku knife.
Santoku is a Japanese word meaning ‘three virtues’ and is used to describe the three primary functions; slicing, dicing and mincing.
The shape of the knife makes it brilliant for Western style cooking as the blade is flat, deep and powerful, which makes the knife an excellent choice for cutting up heavy root vegetables, such as sweet potato, squashes and celeriac.
The G-46 is made from CROMOVA 18 stainless steel, specially developed by GLOBAL as it holds a razor-sharp edge and resists rust, stains and corrosion.
Ice tempered and hardened to Rockwell C56-58, each knife is carefully weighted by filling the handles with sand to achieve the optimum weight and perfect balance.
Other unique features include its smooth contours and seamless construction which eliminates food and dirt traps offering the ultimate in safety and hygiene.
The acute 15-degree angle cutting edge provides unsurpassed performance and superior edge retention.
Santoku knives are also well combined with fluting which helps prevent these vegetables sticking to the knife blades.
The fluted version of the G-46 is the G-80.
