Takayuki Grand Chef knives are made with the highly regarded Swedish Stainless Steel called Bohler N685. This popular alloy is made by the Bohler-Uddeholm company and boasts some of the lowest impurities of any stainless steel. The quality iron used to make Bohler N685 Stainless Steel is excavated from company mines and contains an extremely low amount of phosphorus and sulfur, resulting in a steel that is regarded to be one of the finest in the world.
While mono steel knives might lack the handmade feel and look of other forged blades, they make up for this with their precision, consistency, and durability. The fully stainless construction also makes them really easy to maintain. This is an essential requirement in many home or professional kitchens. Bohler N685 stainless steel offers exceptional sharpness as well as abrasion and corrosion resistance, and will stay that way over many years of service.
As it is a double-sided knife it is far easier to sharpen than singles and will be a good fit for both left- and right-handed users.
