Sakai Shoryu 白虎 White #1 Steel Sakimaru Takohiki



Handle: octagonal Ebony handle with buffalo horn and silver ferrule

The renowned "Sakai Shoryu" from Sakai City, Osaka, is meticulously crafted with a core of sharp and hard White #1 Steel, forged with the method of dual-layered folding, and finally, hand-finished with traditional Hon-Kasumi to exhibit the delicate hazy and misty effect.

The white #1 steel, known for its exceptionally high sharpness and durability, creates an incredibly sharp and resilient blade while remaining easy to sharpen. These features make this series well-suited for professionals who prefer to maintain their knives at an extremely sharp edge.

The Sakimaru Takohiki is one type of sashimi knife, sharing a similar purpose. Its appearance resembles that of traditional Japanese swords, with a straight back of the blade, akin to the Takohiki style, earning it the name "Sakimaru Takohiki Yanagi Knife."

This product comes with a Magnolia wood Saya.

How to Maintain High Carbon Steel Knives

After use, simply wipe the knives dry. Please do not use a dishwasher to clean the knives. If you plan not to use the knives for an extended period, be sure to apply a thin layer of protective oil.

In the case of rust on the blade, you can use a rust eraser or a special 3M scrubber (only suitable for matte-finish knives). If there is minor rust on the mirror-finished parts, use rust removal paste and make sure to thoroughly remove any remaining residue with a Cleaning Naphtha to eliminate all chemical remnants from the blade.

Please use the knives for their intended purpose. Different knives are designed for slicing, chopping, or handling frozen foods. Do not use them for purposes beyond their intended use to avoid damaging the knives.

We highly recommend using EDCI's high-tech rust prevention spray to maintain your high carbon steel knives. EDCI rust prevention spray is made in the USA, non-toxic, environmentally friendly, poses no harm to the environment, and is non-flammable.
