Care Instructions:

  • Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Dishwashers are very bad for all knives.
  • Use a soft cloth to wash the blade. Avoid abrasive dish scrubbers and powders as these can damage the finish of your beautiful knife.
  • Do not cut through bones. You can certainly cut along/beside bones, but do not cut into bones. This can, at worst, chip the blade.
  • Never use this knife to cut frozen food. I’m sure you have a 4×4 somewhere in your kitchen for this job.
  • Never twist, cleave or prise the blade.

Molybdenum Vanadium Stainless steel:

AUS 8 is a high carbon, low chromium stainless steel that has proven, over time, to be a very good compromise between toughness, strength, edge holding and resistance to corrosion.

It has added Vanadium to give the steel more hardness. This steel is very easy to sharpen to a razor edge but it will dull relatively quickly compared to high-carbon.

RYUTOKU – Deba 150mm and Yanagiba 210mm SET
RYUTOKU – Deba 150mm and Yanagiba 210mm SET

 

RYUTOKU

RYUTOKU knives are manufactured by Fuji Cutlery Co., Ltd. The sister company of Tojiro applies advanced construction techniques and modern materials, combined with high quality Japanese quality control to produce great knives suitable for chefs, home cooks and professionals at a great price.

 

This set includes the following:

1 x RYUTOKU – Yanagiba 210mm

1x RYUTOKU – Deba 150mm

Yanagiba:

The Yanagiba is like a carving knife on rocket boosters. It slips through food effortlessly and crazy sharpness of the single edge means you will never struggle. Its a true gateway knife for people wanting to get into single bevel knives and learn some cool tricks. When slicing with a yanagiba the blade will naturally want to pull to the left on a right handed knife. (The opposite is true for is true for a lefty. ) As the driver of the blade, you must take control and tell it where to go. Sounds tricky, but you will get the hang of it after a while. Still the Yanagiba can take years to master.

 

Deba:

The Deba is one of the first knives a sushi chef would use when preparing fish. Mainly used for filleting fish but can also be used for doing some poultry work.

These knives, and a considerable amount of skill on the chefs part, are the reason sushi looks so good and why the fish is cleaned so perfectly. Done properly, the bones will be in one pile with almost no meat on them and the meat will be completely bone-free, perfect fillets.

Most debas are single bevel meaning the knife is ground on one side only and the back side of the knife is flat. Single bevels knives have more acute angles on their edges that excel at cutting softer, thinner product like fish but in return require a different skill set to use and sharpen.

Sakai Kikumori – ND 3 Piece Set with Arrow Leather Knife Roll + Suehiro Combo Whetstone
Sakai Kikumori – ND 3 Piece Set with Arrow Leather Knife Roll + Suehiro Combo Whetstone

Sakai Kikumori 

With a passionate devotion to knife-making as well as working with some of the most skilled craftsman in Japan, Sakai Kikumori has been making cutlery of incredible quality and performance since its inception in 1926.

The Kikumori Hammered Damascus Wa-Gyuto is constructed using a core steel of AUS-10, a stainless steel with a high carbon content that is easy to sharpen and will hold a sharper edge for longer periods of time. AUS-10 is hard yet flexible making it a good compromise between edge retention and durability. The core steel is cladded in softer stainless steel with a polished hammered and Damascus finish giving this blade its striking appearance. The handle is octagonal in shape made from magnolia with a buffalo horn ferrule. The Gyuto, an all round knife which can be used for various tasks, is the Japanese version of a chef’s knife. Gyuto’s generally have a flatter blade profile near the heel to aid in chopping, a rounder belly for rock chopping and a sharp, pointed tip for precision cutting.

Sakai Takayuki Homura Guren Urushi 3 Piece SET
Sakai Takayuki Homura Guren Urushi 3 Piece SET

Homura Guren

The Homura Guren Range by Sakai Takayuki is Handcrafted by Master Black smith Itsuo Doi.

Itsuo Doi was thought by his father Keijiro Doi who is very well known for his superb single bevel knives and specially for forging steel at much lower temperatures then other Blacksmiths. This assists in decarbonation of the steel and enlargement of the steel’s grain size making his knives more durable. He passed this skill over to Itsuo Doi.

 

The Homura Guren range is forged with Aogami # 2 – cladded in soft Iron then heat-treated to 62-63 HRC for amazing edge retention. The blade has a amazing edge geometry to ensure superb cutting performance.  The Japanese handle is made of burnt Japanese Oak, coated with Urushi. Urushi is a Japanese lacquer and known as a highly prized material that has been refined for over 7000 years.

 

Please make sure to wash and dry the knife properly after use. The Iron cladding is reactive steel so will oxidize with use. If you are some that leaves there knife out for a while without cleaning it we definitely don’t recommend getting this knife.   We also recommend getting a rust eraser and camellia oil for maintaining your knife properly.
