Sakai Takayuki 45 layer  Damascus 

Sakai Takayuki's 45 Layer Damascus line features an AUS10 steel cutting core and hand-hammered tsuchimi finish for added strength and quick food release. Beautiful octagonal walnut handles are paired with the thin blade to create a light center-balanced feel, and is comfortable in the hand even after long hours of use.

Why we love them: Sakai Takayuki 45 Layer Damascus is an all around great performing knife and a perfect choice if you've never used a wa-handled knife before.

About this shape

Gyutou are the Japanese equivalent of a typical European chef’s knife. They are the ideal all-purpose kitchen knives and can be used for most tasks. Japanese gyutou are typically lighter and thinner than a European knife, are made out of a harder steel and as a result, hold a better edge. The design features nothing to obstructing the edge of the handle end of the blade, so it can be sharpened and thus used entirely. The word gyutou in Japanese means ‘beef knife’.

Handle material Walnut
Blade length 240 mm (9.4")
Thickness at spine 1.8 mm 
Thickness at tip 0.7 mm
Hardness (Rockwell scale) 60
Bevel / Edge Double (50/50)

  • Handwash in warm water and towel dry
  • Do not cut frozen foods
  • Use a sharpening stone, not a honing steel, to re-sharpen your Japanese chef knives
