This product comes with a Magnolia wood Saya.

In Osaka's Sakai City, Japan, "Goh Umanosuke Yoshihiro" crafts this exceptional "Mirror Finish Sakimaru Takohiki," using Silver #3 steel as the core, forging through the traditional technique of dual cladding, and finally hand polished to a mirror finish.

Silver 3 steel excels in hardness, sharpness, and rust resistance, boasting an HRC of approximately 60-62. Its enduring sharpness places it among the sharpest in the stainless steel family.

The Sakimaru Takohiki knife" is a fusion of Yanagi and Takohiki styles, featuring a relatively straight blade. This makes it a versatile Yanagi, suitable not only for slicing sashimi but also for peeling daikon skin and finely julienning it.

The "rounded tip" (Sakimaru) design makes it easier to cut into ingredients, especially for removing fish skins. Its sharp edge reduces cutting resistance.

Additionally, it maintains the advantages of a typical Yanagiba blade, allowing for seamless, damage-free slicing of fish that preserves the original flavor and texture of the ingredients.

How to Maintain Stainless Steel Knives

After use, simply wipe the knives dry to remove any moisture. Do not use a dishwasher to clean your knives. If you plan not to use the knives for an extended period, it's advisable to apply a thin layer of protective oil.

Ensure you use the knives correctly, as they are designed for specific functions such as slicing, chopping, or handling frozen foods. Avoid using them beyond their intended purpose, as this can lead to damage.
