This Sakai Takayuki chef's knife 21 cm from the 33-Layer Damascus collection can be used for almost any task in the kitchen. With the hard and sharp edge you can easily cut meat, fish and vegetables.
Hammered damascus steel blade
The full-tang blade is truly a sight for sore eyes because of the damascus coating. In addition, the top is hammered - tsuchime in Japanese - which gives the knife an additional dimension. It is also functional: food wood stick to the blade. The core is comprised of rock-solid VG-10. This type of steel retains its sharpness well and is also easy to sharpen if need be.
Handle made from mahogany wood
In addition to the stunning blade, the red-brown handle definitely stands out. It is made from Spanish mahogany and gives the knife a warm look and feel. The handle is attached to the full-length blade with two rivets. The protrusion on the bottom side of the handle is also of added value from an ergonomic point of view. You can rest your little finger on it.
