Sakai Takayuki Knives has been cultivated through a long 600-year history by skilled craftsmen in Sakai.
The Homura Aoko is made by the skilled blacksmith Itsuo Doi. He is a son of legendary blacksmith Keijiro Doi, whose family has produced some of the finest hand-forged knives for more than 70 years.
The Aoko or Blue Paper (Aogami) No.2 Steel Knife is made from famous Yasugi steel, known as prime high carbon steel, specifically developed for tools and knives.
This one has highest wear resistance and toughness. Very good steel, and very popular choice for high end Japanese kitchen knives.
One of the best kitchen knife with more excellent durability of sharpness with special hardness like New Ceramic . We recommend any professional chef to use the one in their life.
Speaking to the handle, made of Japanese yew (Taxus cuspidata) wood, the Japanese-Style Octagonal figure fits better comfortably to your hand.
The Japanese yew wood is dense, hard and beautiful with luster, so that it has been used to make important tools for high-level officials in ancient Japan.
The Buffalo Tsuba with a beautiful copper ring equipped to the handle represents high-quality and excellent durability, that means made for professional originally.
(Please be noted that the buffalo tsuba (guard) is a natural product that may possibly be different from the image in color.)
The family emblem of Mr.Doi is engraved as a certification near the logo on the blade.
We recommend this high-class kitchen knife series for professional chefs to enhance their art of cooking as well as for Perfect Gift.
