Made in Japan.
This Takayuki limited production line is crafted out of a 45-layer Damascus Stainless steel with AUS10 Alloy Core. These knives have a seriously sharp edge, excellent edge retention and a light center balanced feel. The handles on these knives are Half Rounded Octagonal Walnut Wood for Top Professional Use. The handle's color of light dark brown recalls the images of Japanese tradition. The ferrule/bolster is made of pakkawood (compressed wood fiber), more durable and less prone to cracking compared to horn material. Each knife is hand sharpened to ensure maximum sharpness out of the box.
Sakai Takayuki has been producing traditional hand forged and hybrid knives for 70 years and is one of the most well-known and respected Japanese knife makers.
Sakai, Japan was the home of traditional sword forging and craftsmanship for 600 years and the craftsmen at Sakai Takayuki employ these same forging techniques to produce knives of incredible quality and sharpness.
