The KATSURA Japanese VG-10 3-Layer Forged Knife Series blades are crafted by folding 2 layers of Japanese forged steel over a Japanese VG-10 steel cutting core with a 60-62 Rockwell hardness for a finer and tougher edge that is still easy to sharpen. The handle comes in brown Pakkawood or black Micarta and is perfectly weight balanced, featuring a full-tang, oval shape design. Designed to suit the cutting techniques used by professional Japanese chefs, this knife series brings culinary mastery to any kitchen. Every KATSURA knife comes inside a handcrafted gift box. USE AND CARE: not for chopping bone; do not use on hard surfaces like granite, tile, or glass cutting boards; wash by hand with gentle dish soap, rinse, and dry with a dishcloth; sharpen with a whetstone at an angle of 15 degrees. Limited lifetime warranty, full satisfaction guaranteed.
