Blade & Handle

This line of knives features a beautiful Keyaki and Mahogany octagonal handle and hammered and polished 33-layered Damascus patterning on either side. The core steel of VG-10 is heat-treated to 60 HRC for excellent edge-retention without sacrificing undue ductility and toughness. These knives are thin behind the edge with a 60/40 grind that helps facilitate delicate, precise cuts and minimize wedging in harder foods like daikon and carrots. We recommend these to anyone looking for high-performance geometry in a great-looking knife with better toughness and ease of sharpening compared to harder powdered steels.

Each knife is carefully finished by the craftsmen of Sakai Takayuki so you can rest assured that the knife will perform right out of the box.

Nakiri Knife

Nakiri (lit. Vegetable cutting knife) is a double bevel variant of the traditional single-bevel Usuba. Its profile is quite flat, even when compared to the already-flat-profile of a Japanese Gyuto; this flatness lends itself well to push-cutting tasks since more of the knife will contact the board at one time. It is common for Nakiri to have some degree of curvature to the middle of the blade so that there is less risk of introducing recurve into the blade while sharpening and also to accommodate inconsistencies and low spots in a cutting board that may impact the knife's ability to make a full cut. As the name implies, a Nakiri is ideal for vegetables and any cutting tasks not requiring or heavily benefiting from having a sharp tip for precise work.
