The right shape
Our knife is created by using the popular shape Santoku and by remodelling it so it can be used for any cooking process, from chopping vegetables to carving meat. All the materials are imported from Japan, a well-known producer for high-quality blades dating from ancient times.
The blade style is a bit curved so it makes it easier to cut, and the height is perfect for rapid movements because you avoid banging your knuckles on the table surface while cutting.
Premium blade for maximum endurance
The story of the Damascus blades dates from a long time ago in the Near East where the black smiths were confectioning swords with steel imported from southern India. The legends say that no one in the modern world can reproduce that exact steel, but we are combining traditional ways with powerful modern function to try to reach that quality.
We are using a high quality VG-10 blade made out of Damascus stainless steel produced with premium Japanese materials, that offers it the perfect shape in order to give the customers the best experience when cutting ingredients. The secret behind its impressive endurance is the fact that the blade contains 33 layers of steel and carbon so the knife is easy to maintain sharp with a minimum sharpening effort required.
What VG-10 stands for
VG-10 steel is a designation used for a very particular type of stainless steel often used in knife blades. The G stands for 'gold', witch refers to the 'gold standard' that this level of stainless steel is considered to have met. This steel is produced in Japan, and it is the Japanese cutlery market that has traditionally made the most use of this particular type of steel in its knives.
However, it isn't just kitchen cutlery that has put VG-10 stainless steel to good use over the years since the designation was officially created. Many top of the line pocket, hunting and tactical knives have used VG-10 steel.
High-quality handle for the perfect grip
There are so many expensive knives on the market that have a very uncomfortable handle that are difficult to use even for professionals. Our knife is built to offer the best customer experience and that's why we use a high quality Micarta handle with durable sealed tight classic oval shape to prevent slip and to create a comfortable grip while you are cooking, even if you are a beginner.
Compatible sharpening stone to prolong lifestyle of the blade
All our knives are coming fully equipped, and our kit includes a sharpening stone and instructions on how to use it. The water stone we are offering in the pack is formed of the coarse 400 grit side that shaves away surface material, and the coarse 1000 grit side that is perfect for finishing the blade with smooth, razor-sharp edge.
Our goal is to make you happy and satisfied with our product.
