Forged by Takeshi Saji, a celebrated artisan hailing from Takefu City in Fukui Prefecture, Japan. He has poured his decades of expertise into crafting a limited series of these  mesmerizing Black Nickel Damascus knives. Now in his seventies, his unmatched skill and artistry shine through every handcrafted piece. These exceptional knives are not just a culinary tool but a work of art, boasting a sleek, modern design enhanced by a lustrous handle made from pearl abalone. The handles not only exudes elegance but also offer a well-balanced and substantial grip for precise handling in the kitchen.

Santoku knives are the indispensable choice for discerning chefs. Santoku, which translates to 'three uses' or 'three virtues,' lives up to its name, excelling at slicing, chopping, and dicing with its straight edge and narrow-footed blade. Designed to cater to those who demand precision, the Santoku knife's light and narrow blade allows for exceptionally thin cuts. Its compact size also caters to chefs with smaller hands, making it an ideal choice for all culinary enthusiasts.

The Petty in this collection bridge the gap between slicing and paring knives, making them the ultimate tool for tasks that demand precision. With scalloped edges and slightly longer blades than standard paring knives, Petites are beloved by chefs for their sharpness and versatility. These knives excel in slicing fruits, vegetables, meats, poultry, and are equally adept at mincing garlic, onions, and delicate herbs, making them an indispensable addition to any kitchen.
