G-SAKAI VG1 PETTY KNIFE 120mm

KATABA is proud to present and recommend the World class KU Series crafted by G-SAKAI.

Making Seki city, Gifu prefecture in Japan mecca for the ancient art of KATANA forging.

The KU Series places performance above aesthetics and so uses only VG1 stainless steel to 

improve strength, sharpness and edge retention. The KU Series attains its sharpness thanks to the 

 “Sab-zero” treatment used in their forging. Each knife is cooled to below zero before assembly 

 resulting in increased sharpness and durability.

 G-SAKAI creates knives that are focussed on performance quality. it strives to forge knives which 

 cannot be beaten on sharpness  and therefore employs only single-edge blades, 

 much shaper than the traditional double-edged western style blade. These knives come highly 

 recommended by Kataba Japanese Knife Shop and Japanese chef’s for despite simple looks, they 

 are simply unbeatable interns of performance.

To sharpen these knives, a ratio of 9:1 should be employed, with the right-hand side receiving 90% 

of the sharpening, and the left, only 10%.

A normal whetstone may be used as the knives have a HRC rating of 57-58. The KU Series is ideal 

for professional- standard chefs who put performance above appearance
