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..
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!
