Utility knives, or petty knives, fill a multitude of roles in the kitchen. They can be small chef knives, mini slicers, detail or paring knives, or poultry boners. The knife featured here is a very nice example of this style of blade. The smiths at Sakai Takayuki have fashioned the great looking blade from VG-10 stainless steel. This ever popular alloy is used by so many knife manufacturers that supply is becoming problematic in Japan. VG-10 is popular for many reasons, none less than its sterling characteristics which include good edge retention and a high level of wear and corrosion resistance. Some users have found it to be more challenging to sharpen, but the smiths at Takayuki have developed a special tempering technique which results in a hardness of 60 HRC and a much easier sharpening regimen.

The inner core of VG-10 stainless steel is covered with a 17-layer cladding of a softer stainless steel. This not only reduces the overall weight of the blade but it also protects the more fragile core. Of course it also does wonders for the beauty of this fine blade. A really great looking Western handle made from dyed pakka wood finishes off this fine package.

  • Steel: Damascus 17 layer with VG10
  • Hardness: RC 60 (special tempered for ease of sharpening)
  • Bevel: 50/50
  • Weight: 3.2 ounces
  • Blade Length: 150 mm
  • Overall Length: 255 mm
  • Spine Thickness at Base: 1.8 mm

    This was purchased as a wedding gift for a couple that enjoys cooking with fresh products...and they asked specifically for this knife. They know what they're doing and I'm sure they'll love the knife.
