Sakai Takayuki
45-Layer Mirror Gyuto

In-Store Purchase Only

Sakai Takayuki’s 45 layer mirror finish series, is a superb example of traditional Japanese cutlery meets Western chef knife. The blade is very thin with a convex grind that falls through food during use combined with a unique and ergonomic Western handle.

The 45 layers of mirror polished stainless steel make the knife stand out next to all others, and the AUS10 stainless steel core takes an outrageous edge that touches up quickly. The handle design is smooth and contoured for the hand, making the knife a pleasure to hold and comfortable to use for long periods. Sakai Takayuki has also managed to keep the balance forward so the knife isn’t handle heavy and unwieldy.
