Mr. ItsuoDoi was born in 1948 and at 24 years of age, he became the apprentice of Mr. Keijiro Doi, his father. Following in the footsteps of his grandfather, Mr. Doi was trained in the secrets of his family’s craft, continuously producing excellent knives as a knife smith in the Sakai tradition.
Each knife is made using different techniques, and passes through the hands of various craftsmen such as knife smiths and polishers. In addition to traditional techniques, the passion and training of the craftsmen are embedded into each piece, and each one continues to receive high marks as a superior knife.

-- Craftsman of SAKAI TAKAYUKI--
The title "Meister" or traditional craftsman is authorized by the Minister of International Trade and Industry only to craftsmen who have inherited and improved their skills over a long period of time in the field of Japanese traditional industries and craftwork and have passed strict screening tests. Sakai knives have a 600-year history supported by the excellent skills inherited from generation to generation by Meisters.
Japanese yew wood which is harder and more water-resistant than magnolia wood is also used for the wooden handle, as well as Ebony wood which is the hardest and most water-resistant of all. Processing Ebony wood is difficult, and it is expensive because it is a prized wood. But it is beautiful and elegant, and is also highly durable so it is mostly used in upscale knives.
