Don't forget these...
The name Takeshi Saji is synonymous with Takefu Knife Village. He was one of the founding members of this kitchen knife creating focused village, along with other knife legends such as the now retired Katsushige Anryu and the late Masami Asai.
Though Saji-san has a variety of knife lines he works on, his flagship is definitely his rainbow Damascus line. The intermittent layers of copper, brass, and nickel are iconically the reason this line is called rainbow Damascus, just see for yourself. What's more? Some knife enthusiasts will give these knives a coffee etch to add even more contrast to these intermittent layers than what you see in the images. And if you want a no fuss type of knife where you don't need to worry about reactivity, then his VG10 rainbow Damascus will be your top choice as opposed to his carbon steel offerings.
A 210mm gyuto is by far one of our most popular knife styles and length. Whether you are a home cook or a busy on the line professional chef, there's just something about 210mm that fits the sweet spot for most. Kind of like having a shoe that's half a size larger so when you decide to put on a warmer pair of socks, the shoe still fits seamlessly. To tie it back to knives, what we mean is, 210mm is a very versatile length which belongs in any kitchen!
