Sakai Takayuki Suigyu Kasumitogi

Sakai Takayuki is well-known as the largest knife maker in Sakai. The company hosts a number of blacksmiths and craftsmen who work together to create a huge array of knives. Although the Sakai region traditionally specializes in single-bevel blades, Sakai Takayuki makes many different shapes.

The Suigyu Kasumitogi is perfect for a young sushi chef or amateur home cook wanting to break into the world of sushi. Shirogami (white) carbon is pretty darn great. It’s super easy to sharpen, takes a brilliantly sharp edge, cuts like silk, and is very rugged for its hardness. Just keep it dry to avoid rust!

Steel Type Shirogami #3 (White Carbon Steel) With Carbon Steel Cladding
Rockwell Hardness 59–61
Brand Sakai Takayuki
Handle Wa (Japanese) Handle - D-shape Magnolia Wood with Water Buffalo Horn Collar
