This is a new line of knives we have started carrying from the industry giant Sakai Takayuki. 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 800 years.

The AS Kengata is a fun and functional kitchen weapon capable of tackling almost every ingredient. Kengata means Sword-Like in Japanese and this is a fitting description for this blade, which is also known as a bunka. The reverse tanto tip is the most obvious design element of the knife. This intriguing and cool-looking tip is a way to get extra edge length to the blade while keeping over all mass down. It is a perfect tool for processing smaller items and performing intricate cuts with the tip.

The blade is constructed from Aogami Super high carbon steel which has been hammer forged with an outer layer of stainless steel. The cladding is given a hammer finish and the carbon forging scale has been kept to enhance the look and aid with food release. The great looking blade is coupled to a maple octagonal handle.

    Believe it or not this is my very first Japanese cooking knife. I spent lots of time researching the different knives out there and ultimately went with this one for a number of reasons. 1.) I love the size, its a great all purpose size for someone like me who isnt a line chef. 2.) Its crazy sharp right out of the box. 3.) The hammered finish as well as the reactive blade is a great look. 4.) I can tell the crafstmanship of this knife is top notch, fit and finish is fantastic and I can use this knife for anything. Overall I am absolutely satisfied with this knife. The only problem is that I am not sure what other knife I will have a need to purchase because this guy does it all!
