Takayuki Homura Blue #2 Sakimaru 300mm. Master blacksmith, Itsuo Doi makes these knives under the umbrella brand of Sakai Takayuki. It is a name that resonates with knife users and collectors worldwide.

The Sakimaru 300mm is a sujihiki with a different name and a cool swoop tip. 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: its 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. It bears the look of a short katana.

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.

    3  Blade is excellent, fit and finish not so much, March 22, 2020
    Posted By: John Maesaka - verified customer

    The blade is where they put the money. It is outstanding. OOTB edge was very good, became outstanding with a little work. Slices beautifully and I love the balance. Unfortunately the finish is not commensurate with the price; the machi is sharp- was not rounded or sanded top or bottom. There is quite the step off from the ferrule to the handle. I have several Tojiro DP series knives in the $50-60 range which are better finished than this $550 knife. I have another Doi knife which is spectacular, both blade and fit and finish, so this really surprised me. 2 stars off for the poor fit and finish.
