From Master SAJI we have 3 of these stunning Gyuto of which have Cherry (Sakura) Tree Bark.l bound upon the handle and Saya, creating a unique and dramatic look and feel to the knife. The bark has been coated with a  resin that makes them waterproof, shrink-proof and hygienic, so these knives are practical. Master Saji has used this�Sakura�bark covering for many years on one of his best-selling series of Hunting Knives, and it has become a feature that people associate with Master Saji and his distinctive knives. In Japan, Cherry bark has been used for over 200 years to fashion small containers for tea and tobacco accessories because the bark enables moisture levels inside the container to be kept relatively constant. The craft of�Kabazaiku�is quite labor-intensive, but it produces highly practical objects that allow you to enjoy the natural beauty of Cherry bark everyday!
The unique multi-colored Damascus blade matches the color and pattern of the Cherry Bark exceptionally well. The blade features a core of Blue #2 carbon steel that is clad with multiple layers of rust-resistant stainless steel, brass and copper. The knives are also fitted with a matching brass bolster for improved handle durability and blade balance.
The Santoku means three ways in Japanese. Santoku is great for use with veg,meat and fish. . It can be used with a variety of different cutting techniques to achieve a wide range of kitchen tasks and is suitable for cutting the vast majority of meats, fish, vegetables and fruits.
