Sakai Takayuki is well respected as the largest knife maker in the Sakai Region. Their knives are reputably known for being good quality at the price, hand made, and delivering the care and experience of 600 years of knife making.

In collaboration with Master Itsuo Doi (son of legendary Keijiro Doi) who is a highly skilled blacksmith, they have produced for the Genbu line, a distinguishable handmade knife out of Aogami #2 (Blue steel) with an eye popping mirror polish. You don't get more class than a mirror polished blade with an ebony handle and saya. Note, the cladding is reactive so you'll want to take good care of wiping this knife down.

This yanagiba is quite unique. First, there's the whole you know 330mm of single bevel goodness. But what makes it truly unique is the fact that it is a sakimaru yanagiba. Essentially this doesn't affect its functionality, but it does mean you get that super cool samurai tip (tanto) which makes an already badass 330mm yanagiba that much more badass.
