The Coreless Damascus Stainless Steel Knives are made of VG10 & VG2 multi-layered damascus steel throughout the entire blade.
These knives have a seriously sharp edge, extremely hard (hardness : 61 HRC), more excellent edge retention (durability x2) and better sharpness (cutting x 1.5) than the standard VG10 blades.
The beautiful handle mounted with a stainless ferrule is made of waterproof dessert ironwood, the densest wood on earth.
Therefore it is difficult to process the material by machine, that's why the handle is made & finished manually by the popular custom knife designer, Mr.Sugihara.
Sakai Takayuki Knives has been cultivated through a long 600-year history. Each knife is hand sharpened to ensure maximum sharpness out of the box.
We highly recommend you to once experience the excellent performance and beautility of the Damascus knives.
