Takeshi Saji Makie-Art R2(SG2) Mirrored Damascus Japanese Chef's Gyuto Knife


Experience the pinnacle of Japanese craftsmanship with the Takeshi Saji Makie-Art R2(SG2) Mirrored Damascus Gyuto Knife. This masterpiece is a testament to the collaboration between master blacksmith Takeshi Saji and Maki-e master Kouichiro Tsukada. The blade, forged with a core of SG2 (Super Gold 2 or R2) Micro Carbide Powder Stainless Steel, boasts a hardness of approximately 63 HRC. This ensures excellent rust resistance, a long-lasting edge, and a unique design imbued with a custom-made feeling. The diamond-mirror finish on the blade accentuates the Damascus texture, adding an elegant touch.

The knife's handle and saya sheath are adorned with traditional Japanese lacquer (Urushi-nuri). The Maki-e artwork, hand-drawn by Master Kouichiro Tsukada, depicts "Sailboats on Lake and Mt. FUJI," evoking a sense of serenity and timeless beauty. Each piece might have slight variations in color, ensuring that every knife is a unique work of art.

This knife is not just a tool but a piece of art, perfect for gifting, collecting, or using in the most prestigious of ceremonies.
