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: The Garasuki is a heavy, thick, single-bevel Japanese-style boning knife. Initially designed for poultry and small animals like rabbits, it also excels at much larger butchering and fish filleting work. You don't want to force this knife through bone, but it's perfect for cutting through cartilage and tendons.
This is a right-handed knife.
About Sakai Takayuki: Sakai Takayuki is well-known as the largest knife maker in Sakai. The company hosts many blacksmiths and craftspeople who work together to create a vast array of knives. Although the Sakai region traditionally specializes in single-bevel blades, Sakai Takayuki makes many different shapes.
About the Knife Line: The SK4 series from Sakai Takayuki is the perfect gateway to high-carbon steel knives for both home cooks and professional chefs. The European-style handle gives them a confident, familiar feel for western cooks, while the carbon steel blade cuts like crazy! We love this line for professionals as they are super high performance but more rugged and less flashy than some of our fancier knives.
