Master Saji continues to produce new and distinctive knives that demonstrate his extensive knife making experience and passionate spirit. This is Master Saji's latest attempt to produce a Steak Knife that is ideal for home use, or ‘on-the-go’. The blade of these liner-lock knives is 4-1/8" (106mm) long and features an R-2 Powdered Metal steel core and outer layers of beautiful forge-layered Stainless Damascus steel. The 5-1/4" (133 mm) handle is hand contoured for maximum comfort and is available in White G-10. Each knife also includes an elegant Black Leather Pouch for protection.
The opening and closing action of these folding knives is smooth and precise, and the liner-lock mechanism locks the blade open very securely. These folding knives are very compact when folded, so they are perfect when travelling away from home. Finally, the R-2 Damascus blade provides outstanding cutting performance, so you can enjoy effortless cutting every dinnertime!
R-2 Damascus blade: 106 mm long x 3.2 mm thick
Overall knife length (open): 238 mmWeight: 70g
It’s now my go to steak knife, especially when I am dining out and everybody got jealous seeing me pull out of this gorgeous little guy and slice the steak like butter.
Hi Koki, I don't think I can provide a review in any detail since these steak knives were a gift, sent directly to my friends, and I have not actually seen them! I do know they were very pleased and expressed their sincere thanks for what a nice gift it was.
This is a beautiful and well made knife. This is my second knife from master Saji, the other being an R2 Nakiri which is among my very favorites and I am not disappointed. The blade locks securely and every time I use it I cant help but admire the craftmanship and thoughtful design. I keep it in my 4x4 and use it as it was intended when I prepare meals outdoors but this knife has the versatility to also make a good EDC knife. Expensive but worth every penny!
Absolutely remarkable. Clean cut, frank and superb knife.
This is the second Saji steak knife that I have purchased from JCK, and both times the knife came quickly and carefully packaged. I couldn't be happier with Master Saji's craftmanship and JCK.
