Enhance your cooking with a VG-10 Japanese Santoku knife

The Sakai Takayuki Coreless Damascus Stainless Steel Knives are made of VG-10 & VG-2 Damascus steel.  The combination of VG-10 & VG-2 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 VG-10 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. 




Japanese Santoku knives are typically shorter and lighter than chef knives, with a thinner blade that tapers to a point. This makes them ideal for slicing and dicing vegetables and delicate tasks like mincing garlic or ginger. 

Chef knives, on the other hand, are usually longer and heavier, with thicker blades and curved edges. This design makes them better suited for tasks such as chopping meat or crushing garlic cloves.

Please do not cut bone or frozen food. It may cause the knife to chip or other damaged. No dishwasher please.

Japanese Santoku knives are designed to be thin knives that slice, cut & chop easily through meat or vegetables to maintain the integrity of each component and freshness.

Japanese Santoku knives are also known in Japan as Bunka Bōchō.  In the U.S. the Bunka is sometimes used to describe the Kengata Santoku which has the angled tip allowing for more detailed slicing or cutting.

Sakai Knives are designated as a traditional craft item and its quality is widely recognized not only in Japan but also in the world.  They have been cultivated through a long 600-year history.
