A note about measurements: Knife edge length is shorter than stated, as Sakai knives are measured from the front of the handle to the tip. Additionally, some knives feature a small 'machi' gap between the handle and blade.
About the Shape -Much like a Bunka, the Kiritsuke is a more bad-ass chef's knife of sorts. They combine the flat, sliding edge of a Nakiri perfectly with the length and slight curvature of a traditional chef's knife. The added steel at the tip allows them to cut more effectively, with less effort on your part.
About Sakai Takayuki VG10 33 Layer Damascus - 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.
Sakai Takayuki’s 33 layer damascus line is forged from VG-10, a high-carbon, stainless steel created for knife making and then laminated with 33-layer Damascus and are BEAUTIFUL. Truly usable art! The brown pakka western handle is perfect for folks who prefer a hefty grip on their knives.
