Product Description

About the Set

The Sakai Kyuba ultimate set includes 3 knives, each perfectly balanced and weighted for optimal form and long-lasting performance:

  • Chef’s knife (Gyuto 210mm / 8.5in) – a versatile all-rounder slicing knife that no chef can live without;
  • Vegetable / fruit knife (Nakiri 160mm / 7in) – thin and sharp, perfect for chopping and dicing vegetables;
  • Paring knife (Petty 150mm / 5in) – extra nimble to tackle the smaller, more intricate chores like peeling or carving.

At Japana we think less is more. More space. More time. More peace of mind. This knife set is a perfect example of what we stand for. With these three high-quality Japanese knives you will be able to perform any cutting task in the kitchen. The Gyuto, Nakiri and Petty are the only knives you will need, a beautiful knife set that will last for generations.


Nothing about Sakai Kyuba is left to chance. It has been designed, forged and rigorously tested to serve your family for generations. Made from the highest quality V10 46-layer Damascus hammered stainless steel – sturdier and sharper than anything you have experienced before. Presented in a natural-coloured pinewood box for safe storage and keeping. Backed by a lifetime guarantee.


Although inspired by 1000 years of tradition, each of the Sakai Kyuba blades is absolutely unique. Every single one has been meticulously handmade and perfected in Japan by Sakai’s  (堺市) master blacksmith.  Forged with Damascus steel – legendary for its plasticity, hardness and distinctive patterns. Handle and blade satin-finished to a subtle, yet stunning lustre. Crafted, not manufactured. No handle pattern is the same, guaranteeing you a unique piece of craftsmanship.


Like most equipment, knives need a little love and care. You need to sharpen them regularly and depending on the type of steel, dry them immediately after use. These are 3 general rules you should follow:

      1. Don’t put your knife in a dishwasher, ever.
      2. Store your knives either on the magnetic knife stripknife stand, or sheathed in the utensil drawer.
      3. Don’t slide your knife, blade down, across the cutting board to clear away what you just chopped.

Also, check our full guide on how to properly maintain the knife and sharpen it.
