Hand Forged Japanese Knife - Sakai Takayuki Hien Blue Steel No.2 Mirrored Finish Kengata Yanagiba 270mm with Ebony Wood Handle and Custom Sheath

Behind the Sakai Takayuki brand is 600-plus years of knife-making history by skilled craftsmen of Sakai City, Osaka prefecture. Originally famous for the production of Samurai swords, the makers in Sakai take pride in their work and never compromise on quality.

This Kengata Yanagiba is ridiculously razor sharp and beautifully weighted, capable of handling all jobs in the kitchen, domestic or professional. If this isn’t the best knife you have ever handled I’d be very surprised.

As a gift, with it’s beautiful box presentation and custom sheath, it would be incredibly received, or, even better, treat yourself you deserve it!
