Sakai Takayuki 45 layer VG10 Damascus
This line is crafted out of a 45 layer hand hammered layered Damascus steel with an AUS-10 steel cutting core. These knives have a seriously sharp edge, excellent edge retention and a light center balanced feel. Octagonal walnut handles, which have been used for centuries in Japan, are comfortable in the hand and easy to grip even when wet. Each knife is hand sharpened to ensure maximum sharpness out of the box.
