Blade & Handle

This knife features a VG-5 core and is hammered to create a stunning 33-layer Damascus pattern. Ideal for those seeking a blend of sharpness and ease of maintenance, VG-5 steel offers excellent edge retention while remaining easier to sharpen than high-hardness steel knives. Perfect for those who appreciate high-quality Japanese blades and wish to enhance their sharpening skills effortlessly.

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.
