Sakai Takayuki 73-layer Damascus chef’s knife
Superb Japanese Santoku knife with a core constructed from high-quality SKD11 steel laminated with Damascus stainless steel. The core is made of exceptionally hard SKD11 steel of spectacular quality. This type of steel is rust-resistant and contains a high level of carbon, which ensures that the knife retains its sharpness for a very long time.Type of steel
The outer layers of the blade are made from Damascus stainless steel, which, in turn, is also made up of multiple layers of steel, giving it the attractive appearance of wood grain.
The handle is manufactured from Japanese ashwood and and is reinforced by a piece of horn. It is very light in weight, making it really easy to balance and manage, as is the case with most Japanese knives.
This chef's knife is crafted in the traditional Japanese way and has a superb and attractive finish.
It is not designed for use in dishwashers, nor, for that matter, are knives with wooden handles or any other kitchen knives in general. In fact, we recommend that you do not clean any of your knives in the dishwasher, even if the manufacturer states that the knives are dishwasher safe.
This top-quality knife also features a thin, light blade with a razor-sharp edge, which guarantees superb cutting performance.
We recommend 'Naniwa' Japanese waterstones to maintain the sharpness of this knife. Product specifications:
