The Range - 17 layer Hammered Damascus
The Sakai Takayuki 17 layer Hammered Damascus steel range brings the classic looks of a Japanese knife coupled with a western handle to give it a more familiar feel.
The Steel - VG10 Stainless Steel
This range is made using VG10 stainless steel. VG10 is the perfect mid-point in stainless steel offering amazing sharpness out of the box, excellent retention and easy maintenance.
The Model - Santoku
Similar to a Gyuto chef’s knife, the Santoku offers a large light blade with a taller profile and a flatter belly, making the knife excellent for a more ‘up and down’ chopping motion for meat, fish or vegetables. Blades vary from 160mm to 180mm. This is a great knife if you want an all rounder with shorter blade and a good weight to it.
