We are really pleased to be able to offer our customers a new line of high-end knives made by Itsuo Doi, son of the famed blacksmith Keijiro Doi. He makes these knives under the umbrella brand of Sakai Takayuki. It is a name that resonates with knife users and collectors worldwide. Making blades for over 600 years will do that for your brand! This storied company started up in Sakai during the 16th century. The company originally made blades to trim and cut tobacco. Sakai Takayuki is now owned by Aoki-Hamano Seisakusho Company, whose goal is to pass on traditional manufacturing techniques while incorporating up-to-the-minute ideas into this canon.

The Hien 300mm is a sujihiki with a different name. Or a yanagiba with a double bevel. You choose! Either way it is one sweet blade. Made from Blue #2 high carbon steel, this kitchen weapon will slice its way through almost any raw or cooked protein with no effort needed. And that is the point of a knife like this: itís all about how it slices in one motion while disturbing the ingredient as little as possible. The slight recurve shape is conducive to making this action even easier. Together with the reverse tanto tip, this stunning knife bears the look of a short katana.

The inner core is clad with a soft iron layer in the san-mai style of laminating. A subtle yet beautiful brushed satin finish is applied to this outer layer which contrasts wonderfully with the polished edge. A classic octagonal yew handle with buffalo horn ferrule completes this compelling package. Saya included.
