The Blacksmith - Sakai Takayuki

Sakai Takayuki are without doubt one of the most prominent Japanese blacksmiths with over 600 years of history.

As such, they are popular all over the world and present in many professional kitchens

The Range - 33 layer Hammered Damascus with Japanese Handle

The Sakai Takayuki 33 layer Hammered Damascus steel range brings the classic looks of a Japanese knife coupled with a Japanese handle to give it a more traditional feel. It has an uplifted appearance over the 17 layer model with a brighter finish and a richer handle.

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 - Gyuto

The Gyuto is a multi-purpose, large bladed knife that you can use for almost everything. Typically these are light strong knives which range from 180mm to 240mm normally (although sometimes longer), with 210mm being the most common and popular size due to it's sweet spot of length for larger tasks but excellent agility. Longer knives tend to be used more for high volume tasks in professional kitchens where 240mm and even 270mm are popular. 180mm is popular for smaller home kitchen tasks too.

The blade profile is great for cutting in a rocking type motion. If you are looking for one knife, this is the most versatile.
