Sakai Takayuki is a name that resonates with many knife users and collectors. Making blades for over 600 years will do that for your brand! This storied company started making knives in Sakai during the 16th century, originally to trim and cut tobacco. They’ve come a long way!

They are now owned by Aoki-Hamano Seisakusho Company, whose goal is to pass on traditional techniques while incorporating new ones. Another of their stated aims is a resolution to tell the world that their knives are not tools, but rather crafts filled with the spirit of blade smiths and sharpening artisans. We like that!

This is a very nice petty—quite small, as far as petties go. It is made from VG-10 stainless steel with a multi-layer cladding of a softer stainless steel. The outer layer is further refined with the addition of a tsuchime (hammered) finish. This is a stout little knife with a robust spine that does not taper much until it gets to the tip. VG-10 can be a problem child of a steel but the smiths at Takayuki have created a blade that sharpens very nicely to a razor-like edge.

The fit and finish are very good indeed, and together with the great damascus and tsuchime finishes make for a very attractive knife. The blade is coupled to a dyed pakka wood handle attached to a partial tang for better weight distribution.

    4  A joy to use, October 27, 2018
    Posted By: Alfy Riddle - verified customer

    This is a really well made, sharp knife that is a joy to use. The more I use it the more I like it. It is stainless steel which is very useful for a petty as you will cut acidic food. It is a beautiful combination of hammered and Damascus and it is lightweight and feels good to use. You will need to pay two or more times the price to get a better knife. It holds an edge very well.
