Takeshi Saji Urushi & Makie Series "風神(God of Wind) and 雷神(God of Thunder) Motif" R-2 Custom Damascus STU-40 Sujihiki 270mm (10.6 Inch)

Availability: Normally ships the same day

This is the new model from “Urushi & Maki-e Series”, which has a"風神(God of Wind) and 雷神(God of Thunder) Motif" Theme. The knife features a reputable R-2 Powdered Metallurgy High Speed Tool Steel Custom Damascus bade that has a unique ‘random pattern’. It is produced using a complex series of forging processes and a specially formulated acid etching and polishing that, in combination, produce a unique Damascus blade that has a sparkling and aggressive pattern and an uneven surface texture. Each blade has a traditional Hamaguri-ba (Convex) grind, a hidden blade tang, a brass bolster & butt, and a handle that has been painted with black Urushi lacquer (Waterproof).

To match the visual beauty of the Damascus blades, Master Saji commissioned Master Tsukada, a government-certified Urushi & Maki-e craftsman, to decorate the handle and Saya of these knives with impressive and deepimpact scenes of 風神(God of Wind) and 雷神(God of Thunder) Motif. 

In addition to the decorative Urushi Maki-e Saya (Sheath), each knife also comes with a traditional Nishijin-ori woven cloth pouch and braided tassel (Nishijin-ori textiles use a traditional Japanese weaving technique that was invented by weavers who settled in the Nishijin district of Kamigyō-ku ward in the city of Kyoto).

The long, narrow, graceful blade of the Sujihiki is particularly useful for trimming away sinew and fat from meat, finely slicing meat or boneless fish, or for filleting and skinning fish. The long blade allows the meat or fish to be cut in one single drawing motion, from heel to tip.

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.



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.
