The Blacksmith 

The Sakon Ginga Octa-Grip series of knives feature a nashiji finish, brown pakka wood western style handles with no bolster and stainless ginsan steel. Although Ginsan is a corrosion-resistant stainless steel, the cutting feel is closer to the high-end carbon steel when sharpened to a nice bitey edge. With a great in hand feel, an easy to sharpen steel and a reasonable price point we think this is a great knife for professionals and home cooks alike!


The Knife

The gyuto is an all purpose knife and the Japanese equivalent to the western chef's knife, and 210mm is the equivalent of the standard 8 inch variation of that knife. From slicing, dicing, chopping, and carving the gyuto can do it all, and this one in particular has a hybrid profile that has enough sweep to rock and a big enough flat spot on the heel to chop comfortable. 

Knife Care (Stainless Steel)

  • Although this knife is made from stainless steel we do still encourage our customers to keep their knives as dry and clean as possible.
  • NO DISHWASHER - the high heat will ruin the wooden handle.
  • Wash and dry by hand using regular dish soap and warm water using a none abrasive sponge or cloth.
  • Ensure the knife is dry before being put away for storage and ensure the edge of the knife is protected to avoid any unnecessary dulling.
  • Avoid Bones, Frozen foods, nuts and hard candies or anything other than fruits, vegetables and proteins.
