Saihyo SG2 Damascus Kiritsuke Petty 150mm



Saihyo by Hatsukokoro in Seki City, Japan.

SG2 is one of our favourite stainless steels. This high-grade steel makes for a knife with fantastic edge retention and very easy maintenance. 

In Japanese Saihyo means 'diamond dust.' This seems to be the perfect name for these gorgeous suminagashi damascus knives. Suminagashi means 'floating ink' and is a Japanese method of marbling, wherein ink is dropped into water to create beautifully unique patterns. A very fitting name for the damascus patterns on these knives.

You truly need to see these in person to appreciate the skill and beauty. 

Please note, although these knives are sold as 150mm the blade length is closer to 145mm and may vary from knife to knife.
