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.

Takeshi Saji R-2 Custom Black Damascus (180 mm)

By far my best knive. The damascus pattern is unique. The handle is oval-shaped and allows a good grip. R2 blade comes razor sharp OOB and the edge retention is excellent. I shaperned it once after several month of use. Overall a excellent knive. Not really cheap but worth every penny.

akeshi Saji R-2 Custom Black Damascus Wild Series Gyuto (210mm)

Hi there, all is just fine. Arrived in time and I'm glad buying this extraordinary knife. I will say more than a knife, it's an artwork. Thank you for your special shipment administration. All was right and it came without damage or so ... It is a difference to work with this knife compared to a V10 steel knife. It hold so much longer all sharpness great. The cutting edge is sharp and in line, no curve or some misleading points on the surface. Great job, I recommend this knife, it is an another higher level to work with.
