Sabaku (さばく) means 'desert' in Japanese and it perfectly describes the Sabaku from our Japanese style carbon steel knife range. If you have to carry one knife to the outdoors for a camping trip, the Sabaku would be our recommendation. Extremely versatile in pretty much everything that you would need to cook up that outdoors meal, be it slicing, dicing or chopping vegetables and meats (without bones).

Key features:

  • 2mm thick blade made from high carbon steel
  • Good edge retention
  • Easy to resharpen
  • Weighs 170 gm 
  • Good for everyday use 

With a blade size that measures 17.5 cm, the Sabaku is compact enough to pack into your backpack. It is equally at home in your modern kitchen with its sleek design and good looks. 

The knife blade is made from recycled leaf springs, which are recovered from the suspension system of trucks and cars, while the handle is made from varnished Golden Cassia wood, native to Vietnam. Please note that slight variation in color is expected as the wood is natural. 

Handmade products in a small family run blacksmith cooperative. From the carbon steel knife blade to the handle, everything is hand made and perfectly imperfect.

Please consider when purchasing that each and every knife is individual, slightly different and small beauty flaws are there, which will not influence the performance of the knife!
