  • Sakai Takayuki Grand Chef Boning Knife, Japanese Hankotsu Style, 150mm / 5.9"
    • 30% off

    Hankotsu style boning knife. Strong and sturdy for cutting meat away from bones (like a standard western-style "boning knife" -- it's NOT for cutting through bones). Like the honesuki style boning knife, this is a thick blade and a pretty serious piece of metal! It's not like a Western (German) style flexible boning knife -- the blade is really thick and stiff, but the edge is still remarkably sharp, so the knife is tough, but still effective. An interesting and useful knife, and a style that seems to be gaining more traction among my professional chef customers.

  • Sakai Takayuki Grand Chef Chef's Knife, 210mm / 8.25"
    • 31% off
    Product is out of stock

    I really like these knives because the blade quality is just superb. You get a standard chef knife size and shape made of very hard (HRC around 60) high-end Uddeholm Swedish steel, and the edge is precision ground and finished so it's crazy sharp. The handle is just the right size for the blade and the fit and finish are excellent, making this a fantastic value for someone looking for a quality Japanese made knife with high quality steel. If you've been thinking of a Misono UX10 for example but were turned off by the high price, this is a fantastic option, since in my opinion you get a blade that is at least the equivalent, but with a more affordable and rugged ABS handle (similar to the handle on a Wusthof Classic knife for example).

    This is a super-sharp and high quality knife that will be sure to offer years of pleasure in the kitchen.

  • Sakai Takayuki Grand Chef Chef's Knife, 240mm / 9.5"
    • 34% off

    An excellent choice as your main weapon of choice for home or professional use, especially if you're looking for something a bit larger than the typical 8" chef's knife or 7" santoku. This size is the #1 choice for professional chefs, so it's definitely a great choice for the working chef, culinary school student, or home cook looking for a longer knife to add to a growing collection... it's not that big really, and being thin and light and super sharp in the Japanese tradition, it's really doesn't "feel" especially big in your hand and in use. The handle is just the right size for the blade and the fit and finish are excellent, making this a fantastic value for someone looking for a quality Japanese made knife with high quality steel. Made of a hard and long lasting special alloy stainless steel from Uddeholm Sweden. This is a super-sharp knife that will be sure to offer years of pleasure in the kitchen.

  • Sakai Takayuki Grand Chef Kiritsuke Chef's Knife / Yanagiba, 260mm / 10.24"
    • 32% off

    This style of knife is an interesting and increasingly popular alternative to the usual European chef's knife shape. It's sort of a cross between a chef's knife and a traditional Japanese yanagiba. It's as thin as a regular chef's knife (not super thick like a yanagiba), made of a hard stainless steel (HRC hardness 58-60) so it will take a very fine edge and hold it well and yet be much easier to maintain than the traditional carbon steel used in most yanagis, and it's sharpened almost 100% on the right side like a yanagiba for superb performance (which means it is NOT appropriate for lefties... sorry). The handle is made of the same ABS as the rest of the Grand Chef line so it will be durable and stable and NOT prone to any problems associated with traditional wooden handles. So if you want something that looks cool and yet is still useful as an everyday home/professional knife, this would be a great choice! Includes saya (blade sheath/scabbard).

  • Sakai Takayuki Grand Chef Petty Knife, 120mm / 4.75"
    • 33% off

    A perfect A perfect companion to a chef's knife or santoku. A petty knife is what the Japanese call our "utility" or "paring" knives. This is the ideal size in my opinion -- it's small enough to use like a standard paring knife, so if you already use a santoku (which is already shorter than a standard chef's knife) or a small chef's knife (say 8"), then I think this is a great length. As with all the Sakai Takayuki knives, I find this a great value, very well made, and with a super sharp, accurate and carefully finished edge.

    A perfect companion to a chef's knife or santoku. A petty knife is what the Japanese call our "utility" or "paring" knives. If you already own a small utility knife or just don't find that you use them much, and if you want something that can be more versatile and used like a small slicer or "sandwich knife", then this is the perfect length (it's long enough to be used like a small chef's knife really). As with all the Sakai Takayuki knives, I find this a great value, very well made, and with a super sharp, accurate and carefully finished edge.

  • Sakai Takayuki Grand Chef Santoku Knife, 180mm / 7"
    • 31% off

    An excellent choice as your main go-to knife for home or professional use, and a GREAT value! This size and the super-popular santoku shape just feels great and balanced and easy to hold and handle. It's the idea size for home use, and many pros are now using santokus so it's not out of the question for a working chef or culinary school student. The straighter edge, shorter length and wider blade (compared to a traditional European-style chef's knife) mean you don't need to use a rocking motion much (and most of us at home don't do this anyway), and it's very easy to use and very sharp and quick-cutting. The handle is just the right size for the blade and the fit and finish are excellent, making this a fantastic value for someone looking for a quality true Japanese made santoku with high quality steel. Made of hard and long lasting special alloy stainless steel from Uddeholm Sweden. This is a an extremely knife that will be sure to offer years of pleasure in the kitchen.

  • Sakai Takayuki Grand Chef Slicer Knife, 240mm / 9.5"
    • 34% off

    The Japanese equivalent of our traditional carving knife. A great addition to a growing knife collection, and an important tool in the kit of any working chef. This 240mm size is the most popular, but many professional chefs still prefer to go to the longer 270mm version... for some and most other uses, I'd say the 240 is still plenty long, but I guess it would depend on the length of your chef's knife -- if you're already using a 240mm chef's knife, the 270mm slicer might make more sense. Great for slicing big meats, vegetables and fruits. Some people even end up using these knives are all-around kitchen tools because they're so comfortable to handle and slice so well (though for tougher items I'd still recommend a proper chef's knife). The blade is low profile, thin, flexible and extremely sharp -- a true high quality slicer. As with all Sakai Takayuki knives, I find the fit and finish and overall quality excellent, and the edge is very, very sharp and precisely ground and finished. Made of hard and long lasting special alloy stainless steel from Uddeholm Sweden.

  • Sakai Takayuki Grand Chef Slicer Knife, 270mm / 10.6"
    • 33% off

    The Japanese equivalent of our traditional carving knife. A great addition to a growing knife collection, and an important tool in the kit of any working chef. This 270mm size is a popular choice for professional chefs and other users who might already be using a larger chef's knife and so find the extra length of the 270mm slicer worthwhile. For most home users though, I'd definitely recommend the 240mm (9.5") length. Great for slicing big meats, vegetables and fruits. Some people even end up using these knives are all-around kitchen tools because they're so comfortable to handle and slice so well (though for tougher items I'd still recommend a proper chef's knife).

  • Sakai Takayuki Grand Chef SP Boning Knife, Honesuki, Dimple, 150mm / 5.9"
    • 31% off

    This style of boning knife has a thicker blade, and is the traditional Japanese shape for a boning knife (triangular shape), normally used for taking apart a chicken. And it's definitely gaining in popularity here... it's quite useful and versatile, with the shorter length and straighter blade edge. This is a seriously heavy-duty knife with a thick and extra-strong blade, and a very beefy larger-than-standard sized handle so you have a superb grip. This may seem like a "small" blade... in your hand it does NOT seem small!! With the thick and yet very sharp blade, heavy duty construction and dimples, this is a really great tool!

The handle is just the right size for the blade and the fit and finish are excellent, making this a fantastic value for someone looking for a quality Japanese made knife with high quality steel and those cool square dimples (granton edge). Made of hard (Rockwell HRC of at least 60) and long lasting special alloy stainless steel from Uddeholm Sweden. This is a super-sharp knife that will be sure to offer years of pleasure in the kitchen. Note: dimples are only on the one (front) side.
