Yoshihiro VG10 Hammered Damascus Gyuto Chefs Knife, Handcrafted in Japan
Handcrafted by Artisans
The origins of the techniques used to create Yoshihiro knives dates back to medieval Japanese sword smiths who perfected the technique of handling fire, iron, and water.
Yoshihiro VG10 Steel Core is a Japanese stainless steel that is often utilized in high end Japanese cutlery. It has a hardness, or a HRC level, that exceeds that of most other stainless steel cutlery on the market. Its exceptional hardness means that the cutting edge can be constructed thinner, and therefore sharper, allowing the blade to seamlessly cut through almost any ingredient placed in front of it.
Hammer clad Damascus steel
The hard VG10 steel is clad in a softer Damascus steel in order to give the blade an added toughness and durability. The hammered texture of the blade eliminates friction and keeps food from sticking to the blade.
Elegant Exterior with Functionality
An elegant 16 layer hammered outer steel is a stylish yet functional design eliminating friction and keeping food from sticking to the blade.
Stain Resistant for a Peace of Mind
Both the VG10 steel core and the outer Damascus steel are stain resistant. This means that they resist the forming of rust when it is left wet during its use. The user is free to use the knife for extended periods without the worry of any rust buildup.
Balanced and Fit for Comfort
Complimented with a premium handcrafted Mahogany handle that extends to the full tang of the knife and ergonomically welds to the hand for seamless use.
