Kanjo VG10 Black Damascus Petty 120mm. During a trip to Japan a few years ago I met young up-and-coming knife maker, Kanjo Tsukahara. He had been working with his father, Tsukahara-san, for just five years but he asked if he could design some knives for our customers in the USA.
Fast forward a few years, and we are now able to present one of the results of this collaboration. The Kanjo black damascus is a unique knife to our site made with VG10 damascus and a unique finish that gives a dramatic look to the blade. The knife is fully stainless and has excellent heat treatment and grinds that make quick work when cutting food.
Fit and finish on these knives is top shelf and the design aesthetic is excellent. The knife also comes with a new black handle that looks great on the dramatic blade.
