Enhance your cooking with a VG-10 Japanese Santoku knife

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 blade that features a beautiful ripple that can be used widely from home to professional. The handle uses a beautiful Mahogany and Zelkova, a traditional Japanese hardwood. 

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.

As expected: tremendous

Purchased as a gift for my wife, who didn’t really like traditional chefs knives. She absolutely loved it! Fits her hand perfectly, she loves the Japanese handle and sharpness.

A real beauty

Just a really great knife....

My favorite knife

This is just a wonderful knife. It's razor sharp, beautifully balanced. I love the curvature of the blade, makes it easy to rock it back and forth for cutting garlic and herbs, also slices throughout apples and other fruit like it's butter. It's also stunningly beautiful, and the stainless makes it more practical to use every day, at least for me. Love this knife.

Cooking with a sword

This was an absolutely pleasure to use. It feels like I'm cutting my food with a sword. The weight is perfectly balanced and the handle feels nice.
