Handmade in Takefu village by third generation blacksmith Takeshi Saji, this 240mm gyuto brings together an elegant aesthetic, keen edge taking, and the convenience of full stainless steel construction. The knife has a beautiful appearance with polished blade flats contrasted by the frosted blade road. A tasteful, well-crafted octagonal rosewood handle with black pakka wood ferrule completes the ensemble. The knife is clad construction with a Ginsan steel core hardened to an adaptable 62+- HRC. Ginsan is well regarded for taking keen edges with ease. Since both the cladding and Ginsan core are stain resistant steels, upkeep is easy. As is the case with any handcrafted knife, dimensional variation should be expected.

    The Saji has an excellent all-round profile. Enough heft to be a workhorse, but light enough to be quite nimble. The tip is also a tweener: Not too thick, not too thin. Nice handle and good looker.Be aware that it was not as sharp OOB as other CKTG offerings, but I got it extremely sharp quite easily. Ginsan is probably the best stainless steel - it's sharpens and performs more like carbon than any other. Consider the CKTG shapening service if sharpening is not your forte.

      Joy to use, December 6, 2016

    Great knife - the bevel/edge was a little uneven OOTB but that was easily fixed on the stones. Its now scary sharp and has potential to be my new favourite steel. Thickness doesn't seem to taper down to the tip which worried me but after some use those worries were gone. made very light work of all veggies. I own an R2 Saji also and the finish on the handle with this knife is a lot better even though it was less expensive. All in all a great knife and cant wait to put it through its paces over xmas!

    This knife is a real joy to use. The edge retention is fantastic, the blade responds well to the stones, and it just feels wonderful in your hand. This is a big, brawny, workhorse-style knife, but it's quite well-balanced so it also feels agile and nimble. It's pretty thin behind the edge, so it goes through product really well. The only cons are quite minor: it needs a touch-up with sandpaper on the spine and choil (see the excellent quick-look video), and it would have been nice if the kanji was chiseled instead of embossed. Ginsanko is an awesome, awesome steel, and this is an incredible knife.
