We are always excited to receive a new product from our friends at Konosuke Sakai. This excitement is amplified when it is a new line that plays outside the normal Konosuke box. Unlike their other lines, the SKD blades are made in Sanjo City, which shows in the general shape and geometry when compared to their more usual Sakai models.

SKD has a fine structure and good distribution of the elements, which in turn make it possible to add more alloy elements than in other stainless steels. The result is an increase in hardness and a more impressive cutting characteristic. SKD is often thought of as a stainless carbon steel in terms of its feel and ability to take an edge.

The edge is symmetrically ground and is as good as any grind gets! The blade has a fairly thin spine with a perfect distal taper, that reduces down to the most fabulously thin tip. Blade height is almost 47mm, which offers average finger-to-board clearance. The profile is fairly slim, with an almost imperceptible gentle curve in the belly.

One of the most outstanding aesthetic qualities of the blade is the hammered face and a wonderful grey colored kurouchi finish. This is quite simply one of the most beautiful knives we sell. Fit and finish are world class. Pure Konosuke! The blade is quite stiff and it features some lovely hand chiseled kanji characters.

This particular blade is coupled to a classic Khii Studio Laurel handle. The balance is just forward of the pinch grip point.
