Sakai Takayuki Moonlit Waves Petty 135mm
A wonderful all rounder and exceptional value for money giving you the quality and beauty of Japanese steel with a more familiar Western handle.
The handles on these knives are all scaled to match the size of the blade which we really like. It's a quality handle too, solid and weighty with a full tang which is unusual for a Japanese knife but that is why this one is so popular.
The blade is sharp as you'd expect and simply wonderful to look at. Certainly a pleasure to use or just stare at.
