Takayuki's Aogami Super series have killer edge life, and the cladding is stainless steel which really cuts down on reactivity, making it a great high performance knife with relatively low maintenance requirements. The knives are decorated with a hammer marked cladding (tsuchime) and have a blacksmith's finish (kurouchi), and are handled with an octagon shaped Zelkova wood handle with a Pakka wood ferrule.

Takayuki's 'Kengata' is similar to a bunka style knife, basically a santoku shape with a 'kiritsuke' tip. They are great for a variety of cutting tasks, and especially shine when using the tip for fine work, such as dicing shallots or garlic. The curved belly of the blade facilitates a comfortable rocking motion.

Sakai Takayuki knives are made by Aoki Hamono, one of the largest and most well known companies in Sakai, Japan. Sakai city has a long history of top quality knifemaking, and Sakai Takayuki's knives represent that history, working with top level local craftsmen to offer both the traditional and modern kitchen cutlery of the highest standards.
