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.
The santoku is a cross between a nakiri and gyuto. It is a multipurpose knife that can cut meat, fish, vegetables and fruit.
