How long have you been looking
for that perfect chef knife for your kitchen?
Sakura - Evolution of the Chef Knife
For many years, cooks used in their
knives that were good when they were new or when
they were sharpened by professionals.
The real good chef knives
or they were
only affordable to the upper class
In the passed few years a trend started
that gave the
enthusiast home chefs the opportunity
to add to their kitchen a
professional chef knife.
There are new European Chef Knife Brands:
J. A. Henkels
American Chef Knife Brands:
And probably the better and certainly the
exposed Japanese Chef Knife Brands:
One of the more amazing
Knives available today,
is the Sakura 8" Chef Knife. Going back 11 generations, Sakura Chef
have been making the sharpest Japanese knife blades
Until recently they only produced Japanese style
knives that were
uncomfortable for Europeans or Americans to use.
Lately they have started making European style
These are the knives that we are used to work
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
giving it 67 Layers of VG-10 Steel.

history of the Japanese Chef Knife.
See the layers of the variegated surface on the blade of the
This pattern is also called
Damascus Surface, or Damascus blade.
What these layers do is give the
Chef Knife an
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
through the blade and into the back
end of the handle.
This is like the old saying
"You can break one bamboo
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.
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

I can’t think of using another knife.
It is still the best chef knife I've ever had.
