SAITIO KNIVES BY Masaaki Sakimaru Takohiki 255mm

This Takohiki knife for right hand use was handcrafted by our in-house knife master Masaaki Saito here in Aspley, Brisbane.
This stunningly beautiful Takohiki sashimi knife slices away loin of seafood like tuna, salmon snapper for sashimi / sushi as well as beef, lamb and Kangaroo for Tataki or Carpaccio.
The name “ Takohiki “ ( Or otherwise Takobiki ) can be translated as “ Octopus slicer “ although it’s not specifically made for.           

Still, you can easily guess how hard it is to slice Octopus thinly but this knife can slice anything on the chopping board with one clean stroke.

The shape of the blade resembles samurai’s katana sword or Tanto but this knife has a single bevel with hollow ground ( concave ) at the backside for surgical precision cutting.
This shape of the edge is called “ Kataba “ and is the key for the sharpness of traditional Japanese knives.

The blade is made of Swedish 12C27 stainless steel which is very reliable blade material with great wear resistance and high hardness.

The polished natural wooden handle is made of  Ironbark topped with a Teak ferrule both from Northern NSW.
The D-shaped wooden handle fits to your right hand very comfortably.

Add this knife to your collection and be a sashimi master!
