Sakai Takayuki Hammered Damascus Gyuto measures 240mm. 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.

    4  Awesome blade, January 25, 2015
    Posted By: Caleb Hall

    The blade on this thing is kickass. I've taken it through all sorts of product and it eats through it like it's nothing. With the stock handle it's super light, so if you're looking for something that feels more substantial then look elsewhere, because the weight of this knife doesn't match with its size.

    Although the blade is beautiful, it seems like a bunch of corners were cut on the rest of the knife. The edges on the blade are very harsh, so taking some sandpaper to the knife is necessary to make it comfortable to use with a pinch grip. In addition, the hot glue/epoxy at the joint of the blade and the handle is very visible. Compared to the pretty blade seeing it set into a glob of hot glue is really an eyesore.

    The price is on point for damascus steel though, so if you don't mind the blade being set sloppily into the handle then this knife is otherwise fantastic.

    I ordered this knife on Thursday and had it in my hand on Monday. This thing is not only gorgeous, it's light and razor sharp. This is my first good knife and I was torn between several different brands and models. Mark recommended this as it was in my price range and had all the qualities I was looking for. I can't say enough good things about it. It may seem a bit pricey to most people at $180, but worth every penny.

    This knife is incredible. Light, razor sharp, and damn sexy. At 240mm, it's a large blade, but extremely effective. An outstanding piece of craftsmanship for sure. Many thanks to Chefsknivestogo.com for the great service. Ordered on Thursday and had it on Monday. Thanks!
