This Sakai Takayuki yanagiba 27 cm from the Gin San collection is a typical Japanese knife. This knife was specifically designed for fish and sushi. With great care and craftsmanship this Sakai Takayuki knife is made by hand in the Japanese city of Sakai. The traditional Japanese kitchen knives are still made by real knife masters.
Gin San blade
This Japanese knife has a blade made from hard, stainless steel No.3 steel surrounded by the classic damasteel. This type of steel is almost as sharp as Carbon Steel. Sharp, easy to use and incredibly sustainable and corrosion resistant. The core of the blade is enhanced with damasteel. In total there are 33 layers that are folded around the core. It makes the knife look unique and a real sight for sore eyes.
Gin San handle
The oriental character of the knife is emphasized by the choice of an octagonal handle made from Japanese magnolia wood. The crop, which takes care of the balance, is made from mahogany. Truly a magnificent combination. Take into account that wood and horn are natural products. The product you receive can differ in terms of pattern and colour. The materials used remain the same.
