The KATSURA Japanese VG-10 Hammered Damascus Knife Series comes in 4 different options; 10.5’’ Gyuto Chef, 9.5’’ Gyuto Chef, 8’’ Gyuto Chef, or 7’’ Santoku. The blade is crafted by folding 66 layers of Japanese Damascus steel over a Japanese VG-10 steel cutting core with a 62+ Rockwell hardness for a finer and tougher edge that is still easy to sharpen. A hammered texture reduces friction and prevents residue from sticking to the blade resulting in a clean cut. The PAKKAWOOD handle is perfectly weight balanced and features a full-tang 3-pin 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.
