Yoshimi Kato always considers balance when hammering the steel, keeping in mind where a knife needs to be thin and where it needs to be strong. His dedication to his art can be seen in these fine VG-10 knives which look far more refined than their price would suggest. Starting with a core (jigane) of VG-10 stainless steel he then applies outer layers (hagane) of a softer stainless steel to protect the inner core while adding strength and durability. This outer layer is decorated with a beautiful suminagashi (damascus) finish which is etched to further enhance the damascus pattern.

The nakiri featured here is a wonderful all-around slicer and dicer. Its tall blade offers increased finger to board clearance while its shorter length makes it ideal for handling a wide variety of produce and proteins. These knives are gaining popularity as a replacement to the ubiquitous chef knife for good reason. The symmetrical 50/50 grind coupled to the gently curved belly make this a good choice for cooks of all types and cutting preferences.

The lovely Western rosewood color handle and stainless bolster are perfectly matched to the attractive blade. The Kato VG-10 Suminagashi nakiri combines great looks, abilities, and value.
