 Master Saji New Design Concept Custom Damascus Series

        Japan's certified Traditional Craftsman, Takeshi Saji is also devoting his time to nurture the young successors. This is very important duty to keep the tradition and technique of the Takefu's "Uchi-Hamono (hand forged knives)" handing down from generation to generation.

       For this purpose, Master Saji is adopting two young workers now at his workshop. One of them is Mr. Yasuhiro Nakayama, 37 years old young man who has joined and is learning traditional knifemaking processes for several years now. It is still too early for him to make his own knife from the beginning to a finishing, but Master Saji has noted his design talent and has collaborated with him to create an unique design series of Chef knives.

        It consists of four (4) essential blades of Petty, Santoku and Gyutos, but their blades and handles have unique shapes and designs. Here are Mr. Nakayama's design concepts.






        The handle is hand contoured and finger grooved with a beveled hole to fit with your hand firmly and comfortably. The blade has a finger rest (stopper) on the back, that can help precise control for a pull stroke (Petty and Gyutos) and a push stoke (Santoku). His suggested two grip styles are shown in the photos, but it's up to you how you grip it.

      The blade is made of VG-10 core forge layered of 63 Nickel and Stainless Damascus steels, and is hamaguri-ba ground to a sharp hand honing edge. This unique series come with a red velvet lined wooden Kiri presentation box, and your choice of three (3) different handle materials, Bonestag, Desert Ironwood and Black/Grey Linen Micarta.
