Sakai Takayuki was established in 1946, and has since become one of the biggest manufacturers of Japanese knives in the world. Their products come from the origins of sword making in Sakai, Japan, the history of which stretches back nearly 600 years. In 1982, the knives were designated traditional arts and crafts.

This fine looking gyuto is made from the ubiquitous stainless steel known as VG-10. It is also called V-Gold 10 and it is, hands down, the most used stainless steel in the Japanese kitchen knife industry. There are several reasons for this popularity, leading among them are the great stain resistance of the steel and its ability to take a very sharp edge. Some VG-10 knives are harder to sharpen than many other steels but the smiths at Takayuki have developed a special tempering technique which results in a hardness of 60 HRC while being much easier to sharpen.

This is a classic 210mm gyuto in shape and size. The edge length comes in at 215mm and combined with the slightly shorter blade height of 47mm results in a slim blade that looks something like a classic French profile knife. It is double sided, so it is useful to right- and left-handed users. It is also a breeze to maintain. This is a high performer and great looker at a very attractive price.

    I've had this knife for a year now, great balance and what an edge, I've yet to sharpen it! Looking at a 180mm for the misses.

    Knife is very out of the box and does a great job, my only negative is that you have to hone it and sharpen it to often in my opinion. But over all 8.5 stars But I love my knife.

    Good sharp knife right out of the box. Good weight and balance. Seems a little thin at the tip. Id recommend a knife sleeve.

    This Hammered Damascus line is the knife of a hundred companies. I dont know if Sakai Takayuki finishes the knife off any different than Togiharu, Gekko, Yoshihiro, etc... but I had to give one a try and have to say that this knife is legit. Fit and finish are decent - barely crooked bolster but handle is a nice size and fit. Light yet doesn't feel flimsy and damn sharp out the box. Bevel on mine is not 50/50 almost like a 60/40. The knife itself is a looker though the inclusion of made in japan under the kanji is a little corny. All these slight flaws don't hinder the fact that this knife has been performing strong in a professional kitchen while getting a lot of use as a line knife and not being handled lightly. I haven't sharpened it once, not even out the box and it is still cutting through almost anything with ease as long as I hone it every once and a while. Wouldn't use for heavy prep or anything sloppy - handle can get a little slippery, and Im not saying it is taking down chicken bones but it was working fine on small pumpkins the other day. Overall, this isn't some gift shop knife even though it is sold under many names and stories. I would recommend for any use - home,student,pro

    This knife is incredible. I have only used german knives before I bought this one and I don't think I'll ever go back.
