This elegant knife is one of our favorites. The blade features a very hard silver-3 steel core that is clad in 63 layer damascus. The knife was designed and manufactured in small quantities by master blacksmith, Mr. Suogo Yamatsuka. The Sakai Damascus Gyuto measures 240mm on the blade, 1.89 inches from spine to edge. The spine width is .125 inches and it weighs 7.2oz.

Just did the review video for this knife. I feel it is unfair of me to leave written reviews sometimes,but I will simply say this: If you are in the market for a custom knife and don’t feel like waiting for it then you should strongly consider this knife. The grind is second to none.
My first disclaimer is that I am a neophite to the entire Japanese knives offering but after years and years using really bad dull knives,I decided to scour the entire web and with some advice from Mark and intensive research,I came across this very special knife from Sakai Takayuki. I have to say that after several weeks of use,that I still love this knife and it does an amazing job cutting the entire gamut of meats and vegetables. One of the nice features of this hand forged knife is that with the damascus coating,that it does not rust as easily as a blue/white steel knife. This knife is really a piece of art as well. absolutely amazing. thanks Mark
