Japanese knives are well known for their intricacy, delicacy, and the capabilities to craft extraordinary dishes. Apart from being extremely stylish and exquisite when it comes to the blade designs and handle materials, Japanese blades are what Japanese food chefs and professionals need during all food preparation processes. Also known as the ‘must-haves’ or the ‘Japanese food essentials’, Japanese knives are forged with high-end, top-tier steels that guarantee users rust resistance, stain resistance, and blade longevity for prolonged usage.
Since Japan is home to varying cities and prefectures that hold the origins of Japanese blade forging, Japanese delicacies are to be hand-crafted with these quality cutleries made through the traditional Japanese knife-forging techniques passed on from generations to generations. Among the top, high quality Japanese knife brands out there in the market, professionals and culinary experts often go Sakai Takayuki as their best option – as not only quality is the crucial factor here, but also the trust in blade performance and fine selection of materials.
Sakai Takayuki is a Japanese knife brand known worldwide for its quality selection of blade models and knife series forged through various specialized techniques and with extremely sharp steels chosen to provide users the best experiences when it comes to food preparation and cooking intricate dishes like Sashimi and Sushi.
Japanese delicacies like Salmon sashimi and beautifully formed Ebi sushi pieces are what truly makes gourmets and food lovers go crazy. Without the use of Japanese knives performing the traditional techniques, it would be extremely challenging to craft mouth-watering, paper-thin slices of sashimi. Thus, professionals and culinary experts are always in the search for top-tier Japanese knife models and series that will fit their needs and perform just the right techniques to craft delicate dishes and unique menus.
Sakai Takayuki’s knife models feature a wide variety of materials and steel types that guarantee user satisfaction – extreme blade sharpness, durability, blade strength, rust/stain resistance, shock proof (some models), and reasonable prices. However, there are two top Sakai Takayuki knife models in the ‘Peeling knife’ section that grabs attention from users who excel in peeling various ingredients – Sakai Takayuki INOX Japanese-style Chef’s Peeling knife 180mm and Sakai Takayuki Kasumitogi (White steel) Japanese Chef’s Peeling knife 180mm.
