Sakai Takayuki Hammered Damascus Gyuto measures 210mm. These are great performing knives and great looking too. Made with AEB-L steel with Rockwell hardness of 60, these knives are in the sweet spot for edge retention and toughness with an easy to sharpen profile and steel.
This knife has a 50/50 bevel on the edge so is good for both right and left handed users.
Comes with a nice octagonal ho wood handle with buffalo horn ferrule.
Well to start I would like to say that Chef Knives To Go has the best service anyone could ever ask for,and like their service this knife is a dream to work with. I am a line cook in a very busy restaurant (400-500 covers 3 nights a week) and this is the knife I use on the line. It is wicked sharp and keeps it’s edge. It is fast and weight and balance is great. It does wedge a little but it’s not bad and that does slow it down a bit but all in all it is a great knife and the Wa handle is perfect for my hand and fit a finish is very good. If it can stand up to 5 days a week on a very busy line it worth every penny I spent on it.
