    Sakai Takayuki Aonikou Blue Carbon Steel Gyutou (Chef Knife), 200mm (7.9")

    If you already have a good stainless steel santoku or chef's knife but have been curious about a real "carbon steel" knife, this is a great option! It's a superb example of a knife made with a high end carbon steel, so it is VERY sharp, it keeps this sharp edge a long time, and it resharpens more easily than most stainless steels. The handle and blade are beautiful, well made, and expertly finished, with excellent overall fit and finish.

    An excellent knife you're sure to fall in love with if you've only ever used stainless steel knives! This high-performance knife features a hammered stain-resistant steel clad over a hard Hitachi Yasugi-works Blue steel cutting core, for excellent sharpness and edge life. The handle is made of beautiful and comfortable sculpted pakkawood for a true wood-like feel and look, but more sealed and moisture resistant.

    But remember, this is a high carbon steel knife, NOT stainless, which means you need to use a bit extra care to keep it dry and stored in a dry place to keep it from rusting. Wash by hand, wipe, dry and store after use. It will also stain and discolour somewhat (like a lodge pan or carbon steel crepe pan for example) -- this is normal, so forget about trying to keep a carbon steel knife super shiny. This knife is sharpened 50/50 and so is fine for right or left handed use. It may appear to have a slight right-side bias, but it's not enough to pose any sort of problem for left-handed use, and can be easily re-profiled by simply doing more honing on the left side when performing normal regular edge maintenance. I recommend the fine ceramic hone listed below under "related products" for regular everyday maintenance. Comes in a beautiful Japanese gift box.

  • Sakai Takayuki Chinese Cleaver Chef's Knife, Stainless Steel, 195mm (7.7")
    • 27% off

    Sakai Takayuki Chinese Cleaver Chef's Knife, Stainless Steel, 195mm (7.7")
    Blade: 195mm long x 85mm wide (7.7 x 3.4 inches), approximately 2mm thick, 336grams overall weight.

    Excellent choice for beginners or home cooks looking for a real traditional style Chinese chef's knife but in a more easily maintained stainless steel. At 7.7" it's also quite a bit lighter and a somewhat smaller than some other monsters out there, and so is easier to handle, and very affordable. This is a VERY sharp knife and nice looking knife, and remakably well made for the price. I think you'll be very pleased with its quality and performance. Remember, this is NOT a meat cleaver. Think of it like a chef's knife. It's what Chinese chefs would traditionally use when we might pick up a chef's knife or a santoku, so it's thin and sharp just like a chef's knife, making it an awesome vegetable chopper... it's great for stir fry prep for example. Handle is made of durable, good looking and comfortable black ABS (plastic) like the Grand Chef line (and most German knives, like the Wusthof Classic line for example).

    Made in Japan. Comes in beautiful red box.
