Our Sakai brand knives are made using traditional methods employed in Sakai City for centuries. CKTG works with a small, specialized blacksmith shop to manufacture the Shirogami White #2 blades which we then send to a specialized knife sharpener for final sharpening and polishing. The blades are passed on to a local handle maker and engraver to finish the knives according to our specifications.

The blade is made from the popular Hitachi White #2 carbon steel with a soft iron cladding. As such, it will corrode if not cared for properly. The inner core of White #2 steel takes and keeps a good edge and it is quite easy to sharpen. But do remember that this is a single bevel blade and as such it is only suitable for right-handed users!

Generally speaking, the funayuki blade is more pointed with a flatter belly than you would find on a regular gyuto. The pointed tip and slightly smaller blade area make for a lighter and more agile knife. It is a great all-around knife, especially for those preferring a push/pull cutting action. This particular funayuki remains true to the original seafood oriented design which makes it particularly adept at breaking down fish, much like a deba. A saya is included.

    Razor sharp out of the box just beautiful honestly. The grind is wonderful the engraving is breath taking just a wonderful piece. Another great buy from CKNTG! I got it solely for fish butchery I can't wait to take it to work tomorrow. I love this website I will never buy a knife anywhere else.
