Harukaze VG10 Tsuchime Sujihiki 240mm. The blade of this 240mm suji has been fashioned from a core of VG-10 core stainless steel which has had an outer cladding of a 17-layer damascus stainless alloy applied to either side. The softer stainless steel cladding is given a tsuchime (hammered) finish, which enhances the knifes great looks and also helps in achieving better food release.
It can tackle virtually any ingredient, large or small, cooked or raw. This particular version of the ubiquitous chef knife possesses a great balance and fast cutting action. This is a wonderful rendition of East meets West. The western style handle is attractive and easy to care for with a sturdy full metal tang. It is very well finished and adds a touch of class to the attractive aesthetic of the damascus hammered blade.
The Japanese style blade is light and more nimble than its European and American counterparts. This is a really nice, durable, and very easy to maintain knife for all kinds of uses and users.
