Sakai Jikko is Kaz's signature knife brand.
Established in 1901, Jikko has more than 100 years of technology of Japanese knife making.
Their products are preferred by a number of professional chefs because of its superior sharpness and durability. To date, Jikko has made hundreds of thousands of knives and is widely trusted brand in Japan.
The Petty knife is used for small, delicate work such as peeling vegetables and fruits. It's a small and versatile kitchen knife with a wide variety of applications, such as peeling vegetables and fruits, or decorating fruits for cocktails and cakes.
Kiritsuke is the type of angular shape from the tip of blade towards back. This distinctive feature is originated with Usuba (single edged vegetable knives) having pointed tip.
This Jikko Kiritsuke Gyuto's blade is aligned 50:50 and the feeling of cut is the same as normal Western knives.
The characteristic of the Gyuto Knife "Damascus Series" is the pattern on the surface of the blade. The 45-layer steel material brings out dense and elegant patterns. Of all the Damascus knives, this one is particularly beautiful.
The Damascus steel material is struck with a handle to give a hammered pattern. Because of the hammered pattern, another feature is that cut ingredients don't easily stick to the blade.
This stainless steel knife uses the purest special stainless steel made in the EU, guaranteeing no rust as while delivering the same hardness as high grade carbon steel (HRC 59-60) for an easy-to-sharpen, long lasting, and keen blade.
Suited for both right and left handers as the blade is aligned 50:50.
This octagon ebony handle was developed with furniture designers, which gives perfect grip. Using natural ebony, strong to rust as it has 4 times wax coating on the surface.
I've been on the lookout for a quality knife for some time and over the years I purchased quite a few - none of them perfect. The Sakai Jikko "Mille-Feuille" Santoku-17 Layer Damascus with Hammered Finish (18cm) is in a different league however. It's very very sharp, it has a lovely weight and feel and it is aesthetically pleasing to the eye. An ideal gift for the enthusiastic home chef.

We just received a Sakai Jikko "Gyuto" Chef's Knife Damascus with hammered finish (21cm) and it is absolutely beautiful. It is a work of art and the blade and handle are a masterpiece. We are very excited to give this knife as a gift to my fiance's best man. Thank you so much for your efficiency and service and we look forward to buying more knifes from you in the future.

Even my wife was impressed by how beautiful the 17 layer Damascus blade chefs knife is , from the blade to the handle, a work of art that is more impressive in person than in the photos. I love how balanced and sharp the 240mm knife is and how it performs on the soggy tomato test, just brilliant. Hand crafted in centuries old tradition, these have to be the best value for money around.
Final comment from my wife, its so good, it needs a partner, so looks like another purchase.
PS wonderfull people to deal with, went out of their way to make my birthday present special.

I bought Sakai Jikko 18cm Santoku Damascus with hammered finish. It arrived very quickly and as advertised. The knife is better and much cheaper than comparable Japanese knives I've seen in knife shops. Thank you.

I just purchased a Sakai Jikko"Mille Feuille" Santoku Knife Damascus with hammered finish. I'm impressed and surprised by its beautiful appearance and incredible sharpness. It has an excellent performance either cutting sushi or vegetables. I think it's worth much more than $150+. I can't stop loving it!!!
