The knives in the Richmond Sakai line are made in the traditional method employed in Sakai City using a small, specialized blacksmith shop and a equally specialized knife sharpener to finish the blades. They are then sent off to a handle maker and engraver to finish the knives according to our exacting specifications. The engraving is in Kanji and done by hand. It says "Mark" on the front of each blade.

All of these knives are single bevel and are meant for right-handed users. They have a convex front side and a concave back side and these types of knives are used primarily by professional cooks in Japan. The blade is constructed from a core of Hitachi White #2 steel with an iron cladding. They are reactive so you must keep them clean and completely dry between uses.

This is a heavy and stout knife. It has a very thick blade measuring 8.8mm at the heel. The front face is given a primary bevel which extends almost all the way to the edge where a small micro bevel is applied. The back side has a very slight concave face which ends in a flat grind all round the sides. This aids in food release but does restrict the knife to right hand users.

Each knife comes with a custom made wooden saya with pin. Handles are Ho wood in an oval shape and have buffalo horn ferrules.

    5  Excellent knife, great value, November 13, 2017

    I wanted a big, heavy classic deba made of white #2 and that's exactly what this is. The fit and finish are excellent. The included custom saya makes this a great value. I look forward to using this beauty for years to come.

    Solid work horse deba, been using everyday on fish prep and seems solid. Lives up to the expectation of the product review video. Would recommend.

    When I ordered this I expected a decent knife . I didn't have a Deba so ordered this . What I got exceeded my expectations a lot . The one I got match the video descriptions, write up, etc and was flawless . I mean I don't find anything wrong, and sharp out of the box . This thing was crafted by CRAFTSMEN who are just that . Constructed to be a user knife but made so I almost want to display it . My wife took one look and loved it too . I'm a 71 year old guy who owns probably 500 knives of all types and prices, custom and otherwise so I'm not easy to impress . While I haven't used it yet I already know how it will do . If the others are like mine you won't go wrong with this one . I was impressed enough I ordered a Richmond Sakai White #2 Yanagi 300mm . If it has the quality of workmanship as this one I'll be one happy camper . One of the best buys I've ever made . Good choice Mark .
