The Sakai Takayuki damascus ginsan collection have a beautiful 63 layer folded finish which stands out above all knives. These handmade knives by master Blacksmith Mr Yamatsuka are the best within the collection and hold a good weight in the blade which has been sharpened by the legend Master Mr Hirotsus who finishes and polishes the knives. The knife collection has a Mahogany Wa handle with a Buffalo horn handle. The steel is the top none corrosive steel available Ginsan Silver 3 which is considered highly by knife makers world wide.
The gyutos meaning is “Cow sword” in Japan as gyu means “Beef” and to means “Sword” this is also known as a Chef’s knife or French knife.
This is very similar to the Bunka which is a mix between a santoku and a gyuto, it has a much more aggressive look but slightly wider than other knives.
