How long have you been looking

Sakura - Evolution of the Chef Knife

For many years, cooks used in their home Kithcen Chef Knives - Sakura Chef Knife Variegated Blade
kitchens, knives that were good when they were new or when they were sharpened by professionals.

The real good chef knives were in
professional kitchens
or they were
only affordable to the upper class
home cooks.

In the passed few years a trend started that gave the opportunity for regular enthusiast home chefs the opportunity to add to their kitchen a professional chef knife.

One of the more amazing
Knives available today,
is the Sakura 8" Chef Knife. Going back 11 generations, Sakura Chef Knives
have been making the sharpest Japanese knife blades Japan.

Until recently they only produced Japanese style knives that were
uncomfortable for Europeans or Americans to use.

Lately they have started making European style Chef Knives.
These are the knives that we are used to work with.

The Japanese blades are forged with a metal called VG-10
which is only forged in Japan.

This metal is so precious to the Japanese culture that it is
forbidden to export it
as raw material
outside of Japan.

The Chef Knife Blade is folded 33 time on each side,
giving it 67 Layers of VG-10 Steel.

Get more information about the history of the Japanese Chef Knife.

See the layers of the variegated surface on the blade of the Chef Knife. Kithcen Chef Knives - One steel molecule edge.
This pattern is also called Damascus Surface, or Damascus blade.

What these layers do is give the
Amazing Sakura Chef Knife
extraordinary amount of steel fibers
running all the way through the blade
allowing for flexibility and extreme strength.

This will be the hardest piece of metal you will ever own.

As you can see in the pictures, the layers run all the way
through the blade and into the back end of the handle.

Note that the Carbon Steel Blade extends all the way throught the knife handle.

This is like the old saying "You can break one bamboo
shoot easily, but try breaking 10 at the same time."

I got this beautiful knife as a gift from my wife.
I've always wanted a real Chef's Knife, but since the
prices were always a bit more than I could afford,
I have always delayed the purchase.
I cannot tell you how happy I was when my wife
gave me the knife as a birthday gift.
I use it all the time, it stays sharp, and it cuts through anything.
Really amazing.
Only when Gwen (my wife) told me how much it cost her,
I understood what a bargain it is.
Thanks a lot.

I've been using the Sakura Chef Knife for 3 years now.
I can’t think of using another knife.
It is still the best chef knife I've ever had.
