The Sakai Takayuki Coreless Damascus Stainless Steel Knives are made of VG10 & VG2 Damascus steel.  The combination of VG10 & VG2 through a proprietary rolling technique reduces the carbide size and creates an extremely hard edge, allowing for a sharper edge along with significantly better edge retention than standard VG10 knives.

The designer handle is hand-crafted from black canvas-micarta that is also extremely durable.  Combined with the full tang, this handle creates an incredibly well balanced knife with a very comfortable grip.

The Gyuto, also known as a Chef's knife, is one of the most well known and versatile knives. This is a Sakai Takayuki Western style series that is resistant to rust.  The blade has a hammer eye pattern full and is a fascinating knife that features a beautiful ripple that can be used widely from home to professional. Please do not cut bone or frozen food. It may cause the knife to chip or other damaged. No dishwasher please.

Gyuto Japanese kitchen knives are ideal professional long thin knives that slice, cut & chop easily through meat or vegetables to maintain the integrity of each component and freshness.
