Takayuki AS Hammered Gyuto 240mm. 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, initially to trim and cut tobacco. 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 commitment to tell the world that their knives are not tools, but rather crafts filled with the spirit of blade smiths and sharpening artisans.

The knife featured here is a classsic gyuto shape. The blade is made with a core of Aogami Super high carbon steel which is then hammer forged to a cladding of stainless steel in the san-mai style of forge welding. The solid outer layer is given a hammer finish while the carbon forging scale has been kept on the blade for that very cool kurouchi look.

Because it has stainless cladding, maintenance is kept to a minimum, however, the edge is still prone to corrosion so care must be taken to dry it after use. A good-looking maple octagonal handle completes this great-looking package.
