Sakai Takayuki Blue Steel Honyaki Yanagi 270mm (10.6")
This line is the pinnacle of Japanese knife craftsmanship and a true collector's piece. Master Blacksmith Kenji Togashi forges #2 Blue Steel, highly regarded for its edge life, purity and hardness with single pieces of carbon. This is a forging method only a handful of blacksmiths are capable of and one which produces the hardest, truest blades with the longest edge life. Each blade is sharpened on a series of wheels and natural stones by Master Bladesmith Hirotsugu Tosa and polished to a mirror finish.

Use & Care

- Carbon steel is not rust resistant and requires special care. Wipe your knife completely after use to prevent oxidization.
