Harukaze VG10 Tsuchime Stainless Steel Filet Knife 210mm.
Harukaze means windy spring and has since become one of our best brands for good quality bang for the buck knives with high performance and excellent steels.
This fine looking gyuto
is made from the ubiquitous stainless steel known as VG-10. It is also called V-Gold 10, and it is, hands down, the most used stainless steel in the Japanese kitchen knife industry. There are several reasons for this popularity, leading among them are the great stain resistance of the steel and its ability to take a very sharp edge.
