One of the most well known and revered bladesmiths in Japan, Takeshi Saji captivates with the beauty and skill that goes on to making every single one of his knives. Combining traditional forging techniques with new and innovative designs, Saji crafts beautiful, functional works of art

Blue (Aogami) 2 is a high performance carbon steel which brings together superb sharpness and easy sharpening. As with any carbon steel it is reactive to moisture so should be kept clean and dry to get the best of it.

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.
