This Sakai Takayuki 45-Layer Damascus WA santoku is characterized by its beautiful damask steel blade. The knife has 45 layers of hammered damask and a hard core of Swedish steel. The hammered top of the blade prevents food from sticking to the blade.
The handle of the Sakai Takayuki is made in a traditional Japanese manner. The handle made of walnut sets off beautifully against the dark crop. The knife has a classic Japanese edge, which means it is razor sharp when you take it out of the box. True Japanese quality, for a pleasant price point!

This is my first Japanese chefs knife and it's a joy to use - so sharp and well balanced.
