The Saji R2 Damascus Gyuto 240mm is truly a knife as art. The stunning looks, fit, and finish of this gyuto place it in the upper echelons of Japanese kitchen cutlery.

Starting with a stainless steel known as R2, Takeshi Saji hardens the alloy to a conservative 64 Rockwell. He does this to increase the overall toughness of the cutting edge and reduce the choppiness often found with higher HRC ratings. R2 is a powdered metallurgical steel which is finding more favor in the world of kitchen knives. It is a tough steel with a high wear resistance and the ability to take a very acute sharpening angle. To further aid in this quest, a cladding of soft stainless steel is wrapped, san-mai style, around the core steel. This is treated to a lovely hammer finish which is both rustic and elegant. A finely engraved line of Kanji finishes this picture to perfection.

The blade height is fairly large at 245mm and spine thickness is 2.4mm at the heel. This quickly transitions to a very thin grind behind the edge which translates to an amazing “fall through” cutting ability.

As if this weren’t enough, a stunning stabilized stag horn western style handle with a stainless bolster is added to complement the blade and offer the user a comfortable and balanced grip.

So is this a knife as art or an artistic piece of functional design? We think it’s both.
