Sakai Takayuki Grand Chef Japanese Gyuto/Chef's Knife 240mm (9.5") Wooden Handle, Water Buffalo Horn Ferrule

I love this knife. If you've ever wanted a Japanese-looking knife (like a traditional sashimi knife) but didn't have use for a dedicated "sushi" knife, this is the knife for you! It uses the excellent Grand Chef Swedish AEB-L stainless "super steel" so the blade is hard (HRC of at least 60) for superb edge retention and sharpness, durable, rust-free and easy to maintain, and you get the very useful and standard gyuto/chef's knife shape. But the handle is traditional wooden Japanese-style, and you even get a beautiful water buffalo horn ferrule (bolster). Note that the exact bolster colour will vary... there is normally some variation and marbling which only adds to the natural beauty of the material. This is a very lightweight knife -- the blade is thin, and the handle material (natural wood) is light, so the overall weight is just 152g. This means that even though the blade length is long by normal "home use" standards, it does NOT feel large since it's so light and easy to handle. I suppose this is also why they don't bother to make smaller versions (no, a 210mm version is not available).

Note that the handle is a natural and lightweight wood, so it WILL stain and change colour over time -- this is part of the charm of these handles though, so it's not a problem, but you MUST be careful not to let the knife soak in water, and to keep it clean and try and stored away from excessive humidity and heat. The blade and edge are expertly finished and VERY sharp. This is a great looking and high performance knife. Highly recommended! Note: The edge is ground 50/50, so it's fine for left or right hand use. I would recommend the fine ceramic hone listed below for everyday maintenance.
