This Ginmaki Mirrored Honyaki series is the TOP line of Sakai Takayuki brand that has been cultivated through a long 600-year history by skilled craftsmen in Sakai, Japan.
The mirror finished High-Carbon Steel Knife is made from famous Yasugi steel, known as prime high carbon steel, specifically developed for tools and knives.
Its blade is made through Honyaki process, so the edge gets very hard and retains its sharpness for a long time.

They are primarily for professional chefs and are the highest quality traditional Japanese knives.
Speaking to the handle, the beautiful Pure-Silver Ring and the Buffalo Tsuba (bolster) equipped to the Ebony Wood handle represent high-quality and excellent durability, that means made for professional originally.
