Kitchen knives & cutting
Sakai Takayuki 33 Layer Damascus: A beautiful blend of various styles
The kitchen knives from Sakai Takayuki are hand crafted and sharpened in Japan. This also applies to the 33 Layer Damascus series. The knives have a VG10 Damast-steel blade and a handle of Spanish mahogany wood. Very beautiful to look at, but also great for cutting.
Damast-steel VG10 blade
All knives from this series have a blade with a core comprised of VG10-steel with different layers of damast-steel folded around. The top of each blade is hammered, also called “tsuchime”. A beautifully designed combination, which in addition has a functional property: thanks to the hammered top, the chance of food sticking to the blade is significantly reduced.
Classic Japanese sharpening
A feature of VG10 is that it is easy to maintain and easy to grind. In addition, the 33 Layer Damascus-kitchen knives are very sharp right out of the box, which they also retain for quite some time. You will cut through almost anything without any effort!
The particular-looking blade is completed by a Western grip of Spanish mahogany wood. A type of wood with a warm look and a deep red color. It is fixed with rivets and a stainless steel bolster. The result of this combination is a series of knives with a blend of various styles. But a very suitable blend that is guaranteed to stand out, both in terms of appearance and in terms of performance.
