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.
Takeshi Saji's roots, are in making and forging hunting knives. If you want a kitchen knife that inspires that initial inspiration, you can't go wrong with his VG-10 core, tsuchime (hand-hammered) polished line. A kitchen knife that feels rugged like a hunting knife with a stainless core and stainless cladding so you don't have to worry about maintenance. Personally, Saji san's tsuchime patterns are very unique and really fit the bill.
And finally, nothing screams more hunting knife in a kitchen setting this Takeshi Saji's awesome western stag horn handles. This one has a brass bolster to complement the yellow in the handle.
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!
