Availability: Normally ships the same day

This Custom Limited Edition Takeshi Saji Rainbow Damascus Wa Gyuto Knife was produced in Collaboration with a Custom Handle Maker, who makes beautiful "one-of-a-kind" handles.

Master Saji has now been making knives for over 40 years and has become highly experienced in his art.

The unique multi-colored Damascus blades feature a core of Blue #2 high-carbon steel that is clad with multiple layers of rust-resistant stainless steel, brass and copper. 

As you may already know, Master Saji is always seeking new methods and ideas for his innovative and distinctive traditional hammer forged knives. His expertise in advanced forging techniques and fabricating custom handles has allowed the creation of these very special, and utterly unique, custom Damascus knives.

The Saji Rainbow Damascus Wa Gyuto 240mm comes with a Custom Octagonal Wa Handle (Wood Resin Hybrid body and endcap, Resin ferrule, with G10, Brass and Green Liner spacers). For safekeeping, this knife comes with a handcrafted Black Lacquered Wooden Saya and a black pakkawood Saya pin.

The Gyuto is the Japanese version of the classic Western Chef’s knife. It can be used with a variety of different cutting techniques to achieve a wide range of kitchen tasks and is suitable for cutting the vast majority of meats, fish, vegetables and fruits. The Gyuto is true multi-purpose knife.

Custom Limited Edition, Takeshi Saji R-2 Damascus Bunka 165mm (6.4 Inch, STCL-53)


This knife comes with 50/50 double bevel edge geometry for both right and left handed use.

For your information, Japanese Kitchen knives are generally designed for right hand use with a slightly thicker and rounded grinding on the right side blade and a less rounded (almost straight flat) grinding on the left side blade. However, both right and left hander can use the knives that have double bevel edge sharpened 50/50 without problems. 

We believe that Japanese knives have the best quality and cutting performance in the world, and we hope that you will enjoy the fine craftsmanship and sharp edge of your new knife. With proper care, your new Japanese knife will be your faithful cooking partner for many years to come.


The Carbon Steel blade of this kitchen knife can discolor or rust easily. Consequently, extra care and attention are required to prevent it from rusting.

  • Please do not put the knife in a dishwashing machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet conditions for a long time.
  • After use, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly. After washing, wipe the knife clean and dry with a soft cloth, then apply Tsubaki (Camellia) oil to the blade before storing it in dry place.
  • This knife is extremely sharp! Please use extreme care when handling and storing it.
  • Unlike German-made knives, Japanese knife blades are ground to a thin cutting edge for improved cutting performance and easier re-sharpening. Please protect the blade edge from hitting hard materials, or it might chip or crack.
  • Please do not use the knife to cut frozen foods, bone, or any hard shell foods such as lobster or crab.
  • When your knife eventually becomes dull, we recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen it.

An amazing knife

The knife out of the box was 8/10 sharp. The finish is lovely and the handle looks amazing. You can see the deep texture of it. The knife cuts very well, although it is blade heavy and took some time to get used to, as I didn't have such heavy knife before. The knife is cutting very smooth, I already did some sashimi with it and it sliced like butter.
