Sakai Takayuki Tokujo Kamagata Usuba 180mm (7.1")
Sakai Takayuki Tokujo*
The Tokujo line is Sakai Takayuki’s best selling line of traditional hand forged knives. Created in the Kasumi method of joining a soft iron jacket with carbon steel, this line goes through additional tempering, cooling and hammering steps to ensure maximum sharpness and blade strength. These knives are forged from a Yasuki white number two steel and the edges are created completely by hand, using a combination of wheels and sharpening stones. The U shaped magnolia handles and water buffalo bolsters are easy to grip and are comfortable in the hand, even through long hours of use.
*These knives are single edged and are for right handed users. Please contact us for pricing on left handed models.

Use & Care

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