Sakai Takayuki knives are produced in Sakai, Osaka Prefecture. This area of Japan is famous for its long history of blade making, with more than 600 years of experience in the production of samurai swords and kitchen knives.
These knives are produced in one of the best factories in Japan, Aoki Hamono Co. Ltd. This highly regarded company originates from a deep tradition of producing handcrafted traditional Japanese knives. The knives are made with consummate care and precision, sharpened and hand finished by master craftsmen and experts. The meticulous workmanship is the pride of the artisans who produce these high quality blades. A quality standard assured by the traditional skills that have been inherited from previous generations of blade makers.
This fantastic 300mm Yanagi is constructed from White #2 steel with a soft iron cladding. It ticks all the right boxes as far as fit and finish are concerned. The beautiful kasumi finish on the upper cutting side of the blade is enhanced with a hand chiseled dragon emblem. It is simply beautiful.
The edge grind has a very small micro bevel which imparts the knife with a great out of the box performance. The blade is coupled to a octagonal handle with a rounded bottom. The handle is made from Yew wood with a water buffalo ferule and it is assembled with a traditional exposed machi. This knife has wonderful fit and finish and is a superb example of a traditional yanagi. Very highly recommended.

    ""If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up. Doi is considered a master of his craft for a reason. It's like holding a Hattori Hanzo samurai sword. To me, it is priceless.

    I just received this today. The delivery time was impeccable which was 2 days. This knife is quality pure and simple, you can feel the quality of the knife when you pic it up. It is beautiful and the engravings are magnificent. Be careful this knife is SCARY SHARP. Glides through carrots like nobody's business. Remember it is carbon and not stainless so it WILL rust, get some of the camelia oil to go with it (Tsubaki oil) this knife WILL NOT let you down. The handle is beautiful and it fits nicely in the hand. Great knife made by master Doi. Believe me if you are apprehensive about getting this knife it is well worth the money. It could be sold for a lot more believe me.
