With their beautiful mirror polish and unique Tsuchime (“Hammered eyes”) texture, Master Saji’s newly developed SRS-13 Custom Knives have an appearance unlike any of his other knives. These distinctive new knives are now available for ordering!
SRS-13 is a high quality Powdered High Speed Tool Steel that is produced by Sanyo Steel Company, and Master Saji has great confidence in its supreme cutting performance and edge retention. The attractive shiny SRS-13 blade core of these knives contrasts strongly against the textured outer cladding of soft stainless steel, and the hand-contoured Stag Bone Handle adds a taste of the wild outdoors. The knives are also fitted with a stainless steel bolster for improved handle durability and blade balance. So, taken as a complete package, these knives are not only visually striking, but also highly practical and easy to care for.
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.

Please Note: In general, Japanese Kitchen Knives are designed for right hand use and their blades have a relatively strong convex grind on the right-hand side and relatively weak convex grind (almost straight) on the left-hand side. However, double bevel edge knives with a 50/50 grind can be used by both right-handed and left-handed people without any problems.
The Powdered High Speed Tool Steel blade core and stainless steel cladding of this kitchen knife are rust resistant for easy maintenance. However, the blade core may discolor or rust if the knife is kept in wet conditions for a long time.
am simply amazed by the knives that Takeshi Saji has finished. This is also a successful masterpiece with a beautiful design and excellent sharpness. This is the fifth knife from Tasheki Saji that I bought.
Truly a work of art. Sharpest knife I’ve worked with. Easy to maintain on a whetstone. The bone handle really gives it character. Will keep for a very long time!
