Saiun Damascus knives have a cutting edge of VG-10 stainless steel that is clad with Damascus (Total of 33 layers; HRc. 60-61) and use Kanetsugu’s special convex edge profile to provide outstanding cutting performance and excellent edge retention. A comfortable black linen Micarta handle accentuated the wood-grain pattern of the Damascus and is shrink-proof, very durable and water-resistant. The stainless steel bolster improves the blade balance and durability and looks stylish next to the red fiber spacer. Kanetsugu use all their passion and experience to make certain that these extremely beautiful knives are still exceedingly practical and cut exceptionally well.

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. 

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.

  • 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.

    Great knife for the price

    This knife is solid for the price. The profile is a bit different than most of the gyuto I’ve owned, so I wasn’t sure about the practicality of it. Let me tell you, it works great. From midsection to heel is pretty flat, and it works great for veg prep. Especially for green onions. The linen Micarta handle is really nice too. The wood grain texture provides some nice grip. Handle is a little short and doesn’t protrude at the butt like most western handles, but I didn’t mind. This knife is great for chopping away at sushi rolls. Makes a good home knife too!

    It was one of my best ideas for a gift to a special person

    First of all – I am a returning client, who purchased Japanese knives on JapaneseChefsKnife.Com 4 times – as a special gift for my father, my best friend, my brother and for my sister. I’m delighted with the quality of these items and I really love the symbolic meaning. These knives are extremely sharp, durable, helpful, and you need to take care of them – just like my relations with the special people I gave these knives to. Magnolia wooden saya was a perfect choice for an elegant object that can be used to protect the beautiful and valuable blades. Moreover I used other local craftsmen services to engrave a special dedication on the wooden saya to make it even more personalized and emphasize the uniqueness of the whole set. I’m grateful to the unbelievable craftsmen from Seki district for making these beautiful items and grateful to people from JapaneseChefsKnife.com for making them available for us. Everyone who got this gift from me was bewildered, which means I was happy as well. Thank you! ありがとうございました
