“Wild” and “dynamic” are the words that best describe this Saji VG-10 custom Damascus kitchen knife.
The blade is made with a VG-10 core forged Nickel Damascus Stainless steel (HRc. 62) and they feature a traditional Japanese Hamaguri-Ba (Convex) blade grind that provides remarkable cutting performance.
The layers of white-colored Nickel steel in this Damascus blade contrasts strongly with the stainless steel layers to produce a powerful wavy Damascus pattern that truly sparkles. To further accentuate the wild appearance of the Damascus, Master Saji decided to use natural Stag Bone to produce some very tasteful handle scales and a pinned brass bolster, which will age beautifully.
A mainstay of professional Western kitchens, the Petty knife is a small general-purpose knife used for peeling, shaping, and slicing fruits and vegetables, chopping herbs, and making garnishes. The compact size and relatively narrow blade of the Petty knife mean that it is very nimble and controllable, thus it is ideal for making precise cuts.

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 Stainless steel blade kitchen knife that has a good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However, it may get rust, if kept in wet condition.
Stunning knife. Sharp and well balanced. A bit heavy in hand, but beautiful blade
gorgeous knife. Perfect shape and finish.
This is my second knife from Takeshi Saji. Amazing.
