The Sakura series combines the best characteristics of Japanese and Western-style knives. Nenohi blades offer the durability and sharpness of a traditional Japanese carbon steel knife, but are rust resistant and easier to maintain. The knives in the Sakura series have double bevel blades and Japanese magnolia handles.
In fusing the blade to the handle, the gap is filled using the same Steel Type as the handle. Furthermore, a waterproof wax Steel Type is added to prevent any chance of moisture entering through even a minuscule of spaces. E-Ume deters problems arising from the metals rusting inside the handle core due to moisture.
The gyuto is the Japanese version of the classic Western chef's knife but the blade is thinner and holds a sharper edge. Use it for chopping, mincing and slicing meat, fish, vegetables and fruit.
Please be aware that these knife handles are made using water buffalo horn which is a natural material. We make no guarantee and do not take requests as to the color or patterning of the buffalo horn. It may be solid black, blonde or a mixture thereof. Thank you for understanding.
High carbon steel knives can still rust if not maintained properly. Use the Tsukiji Masamoto or Sabitohru Rust Remover to clean oxidized blades.
