Blade & Handle
Sakai Takayuki created this coreless Damascus using a proprietary technology that stack dozens of layers of VG10 and VG2 steels. While most kitchen knives contain a core, the Sakai Takayuki ??coreless?? series does not use a separate core material. Instead, the numerous layers are combined to create a wear resistant, high toughness, high hardness knife with excellent sharpness. Since the knife is without a core, it can be sharpened as the 60/40 double-edge or even as the edge like a 10/90 single-bevel.
This well-balanced knife with thin blade allows the user to cut with very little resistance.
The canvas micarta handle provides a better grip and a more durable long-lasting handle that can tolerate extreme temperatures. Micarta is made of canvas (cotton), linen, plywood, paper, etc. as the core, and is mainly bonded with phenol resin and an perfect material for knife handles, with excellent robustness, water resistance.
This is a small multipurpose paring/petty knife used to peel, cut, de-seed and tourne vegetables and fruit, as well as do other tasks like de-veining shrimp. It is an essential tool for bartenders who serve fresh fruit garnishes.
