Takeshi Saji VG-10 Gold Damascus Nakiri No Handle

If you are not yet familiar with the work of Takeshi Saji, it represents functional art at its finest. Saji Hamono specializes in fully functional Japanese Knives that can also be admired on the knife rack. I have had my eyes on these for a while and am eager to see one with a full black horn handle.

An Advanced Core for Enhanced Durability

No, not VG-10. The core steel is VG-10W steel, an advanced variant of the renowned VG-10, enriched with tungsten. This not only fortifies its durability but also retains its high corrosion resistance, all while sustaining a 62 Rockwell Hardness.

The Nakiri

Nakiri knives are made for vegetables. After a Zach Peter's Professional Sharpening touch-up, a gentle push-cut, and it will fall through food. We recommend adding Zach Peter's hand sharpening to bring this to its best from day 1. Saji-san's knives are not shipped out with their edges at their best, so either prepare to sharpen it, or let us do it for you.
