Takaharu 8″ Chef Knife
The Takaharu 8-inch Chef Knife is the second addition to what is easily the most beautiful knife series in the Steel collection. Like its more shapely sibling, the Takaharu Kiritsuke, with its exquisite, defining VG-10 stainless steel blade, the Takaharu 8-inch Chef Knife can handle a variety of kitchen tasks, from chopping to slicing to filleting, with incredible ease and precision.
With the Takaharu Series you can't go wrong - choose the shape you prefer: the more Western influenced 8-inch Chef Knife or the similarly sized but Japanese-inspired Kiritsuke. Every knife in the Takaharu Series is made from 33 layers of stainless steel folded and forged uniquely around a core of VG-10 steel. The resulting blade has a total of 67 layers of metal and is incredibly strong and resilient.
Even more notable is that every Takaharu Series handle we produce is completely unique. Each handle undergoes a distinct colorization process, which means the knife you receive will have a surprisingly unique color and pattern. Owners of our Takaharu knives will be able to proudly use a one-of-a-kind, professional grade knife in their kitchens.
The Takaharu 8-inch Chef Knife's beautiful aesthetic, precision blade, and ergonomic design make it a must-have for every aspiring chef.
Our blades are made of the highest quality stainless steel. 33 layers of stainless steel are folded and forged around a core of VG10 steel, resulting in a sharper, longer-lasting blade than other chef’s knives.
The form factor of this Chef Knife's blade is the defacto standard in most North American professional kitchens.
Our 8-degree oblique V-shaped blades are made from a high-carbon VG10 stainless steel core.
With 1% carbon composition and a Rockwell Hardness rating of 59, the Takaharu blades are twice as hard as other knives in their class.
Easy to Clean
Made with stainless steel, cleaning any knife is as easy as wiping it gently with a wet sponge or cloth.
Each knife has been designed with the optimal center of gravity to ensure it is well-balanced in your hand.
The beautiful octagonal wooden handle ensures a comfortable and sturdy grip with every use.
Blade: 8-degree V-shaped chef knife blade. Made with 33 layers of stainless steel, folded and forged around a high-carbon VG10 steel core. The blade core is composed of 1% carbon and rated 59 HRC on the Rockwell hardness scale.
Handle: Our unique colourization process means that every handle we produce is completely different. Each handle undergoes a special stabilization process during which the wood is filled to the core with coloured resin. This process not only yields a unique pattern of colours, but it also provides better durability than traditional wood. Because high quality stabilized wood absorbs very little water, it is less prone to warping and cracking.
Note: we cannot predict the colour or pattern of the handle you will receive.
Handle is octagonal in shape.
