Takeshi Saji R-2 Custom Black Damascus Wild Series Gyuto (180mm to 270mm, 4 sizes, Ironwood Handle)

Availability: Normally ships the same day


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

After testing and evaluating a very reputable Powdered Metallurgy High Speed Tool Steel, called “R-2” (Manufactured by Kobelco), he decided to produce an exciting new range of this traditionally hammer-forged Damascus kitchen knife using this modern ‘super steel’.

A dark R-2 Damascus blade, which features a crisp and vigorous Damascus pattern. This knife fitted with the natural figure and grain of the Ironwood Handles a and polished stainless steel bolster and rivets, which match the energetic style of the Damascus blade.

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.

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 the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and sharp edge with your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for long times.

 

Important

This is the Powdered High Speed Tool Steel blade kitchen knife that has a rust resistance for easy maintenance. However, it may get rust, if kept in wet condition.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for long time.
  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes, and keep it in dry place.
  • This is an extremely sharp knife. Please use special cares in using and storing it.
  • Unlike German made knives, Japanese knife blades are ground to thin cutting edge for sharper cutting and easier re-sharpening. Please protect the edge from hitting hard materials to avoid chipping or cracking.
  • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, any hard shell foods such as lobster and crab..
  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.

Perfect look and the edge

I have Gyuto and Petty. Takeshi Saji R-2 Custom Black Damascus Wild Series have amazing look (handle especially), very sharp edge and good feel in hand. For that 10/10 generally. Just for cuttting vegetable 9/10 because of it's rougher damascus steel and for this purpose is the best to have one more smoother knife. But it is detail and I recommend warmly these knifes...

Great-Looking and Great Performer!

This knife looks amazing, and cuts beautifully to boot. It was laser sharp out of the box and has handled everything I've thrown at it so far! I love the feel of the handle - compared to others it's probably on the heavy end of the spectrum, but I prefer that personally.

I love the look, performance is amazing with meat

I love this knife. The looks are awesome. The down-side to the damascus steel, which I knew going in, is that it's rougher and therefore just doesn't cut some things as well. IMO this knife cuts meat best, and feels incredible cutting fish, and steak it's pretty effortless to trim and chop as desired. Vegetables it leaves a bit to be desired in terms of smoothness of the blade, and so I've been falling back to my trusty victorinox 8" chef knife for those. So far though, I've really enjoyed cutting beef and fish with it. For the price, and it's overall performance I'd probably recommend getting a smoother knife in the same price range for vegetables and as your sole chefs knife, if you don't have one yet.
