Custom built VG-10 chef's knife, made from folded VG10, this Damascus knife is elegant and unusual. After the steel is folded it is then hammered. The knife is polished to a mirror finish not only bringing out the folds but accentuating the hammered area. VG-10 is considered by many to be one of the finest stainless steels available. Made in Japan, VG-10 offers high carbon content in a stainless steel. It is known for great edge retention. Unlike many Damascus blades, VG-10 resists corrosion and doesn't need a coating of oil on the steel to inhibit rust.
It's integrated bolsters provide a smooth, sturdy flow to the handle area. The handle scales are made of pine cone cast in resin for a sturdy and distinctive handle; pinned with two brass pins and one fancy mosaic pin.
This may be one of the finest kitchen knives you will ever own. Do Not put knife in a dishwasher.
