SAKAI TAKAYUKI NANAIRO Yanagi-knife

AOKI-HAMONO SEISAKUSHO CO., LTD(Osaka)

There is a saying that “everything starts from Sakai.” Located in Osaka, the city once flourished as a major trading port in early 16th century when Japan prospered from the trade with Europeans and became a gateway to Japan for new technologies and cultures from overseas. Merchants in the city embarked on new businesses and among the many things that trace their origin to Sakai are the Japanese knives.
Brought to life based on the concept of “more beautiful and hygienic,” SAKAI TAKAYUKI NANAIRO Yanagi-knife employs a blade made of rust-resistant molybdenum steel which is carefully manufactured through superb heat treatment and sharpened by skilled artisans. The excellent sharpness makes it suitable even for demanding professional chefs. The blade length comes available in four types of 210 mm, 240 mm, 270 mm and 300 mm. The ABS handle achieves superb water resistance and durability to a degree unattainable with conventional wooden handles. The innovative design with an amazing selection of 14 colors brought about by Japanese lacquerware technique follows the modern trend while respecting time-honored tradition. The craftspeople in Sakai take pride in creating high quality knives with meticulous attention to detail. Imbued with such artisan soul, the supreme knife with an elegant shine fascinates the hearts of many people beyond the borders.
