The KATSURA VG-10 Damascus Nakiri Knife kit comes with a blade blank only, allowing for a design-it-yourself handle made from a material of your choice. The knife's rectangular blade is ideal for making straight cuts when slicing vegetables. 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. The handle is perfectly weight balanced and features a full-tang and 3-pin design with 4 sets of pins included. Designed to suit the cutting techniques used by professional Japanese chefs, this knife 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.
