This knife is made with a VG10 core, and hammered to produce a 33 layer damascus pattern. VG10 is one of the best stain resistant steels used for blades, and this knife has an excellent cutting edge as well as edge retention.
Each knife is carefully finished by the craftsmen of Sakai Takayuki so you can rest assured that the knife will perform right out of the box.
The gyuto is the Japanese version of the classic Western chef's knife but the blade is thinner and holds a sharper edge. Use it for chopping, mincing and slicing meat, fish, vegetables and fruit.
