The Takayuki Damascus Hammered VG-10 Kengata is a knife that adheres to the ancient goals and principals of the storied company that gives the brand its name. It is made from the very popular stainless steel known as VG-10. The name stands for V Gold 10, or sometimes V-Kin-10 (kin means "gold" in Japanese) and it is by far the most popular stainless alloy used in the making of Japanese kitchen knives.

A kengata knife features the classic tanto tip found on Japanese swords. These knives can come in various styles, from the thin yanagiba to the stout bunka. This knife falls into the latter category.

Bunkas are general purpose knives adept at tackling a wide range of kitchen cutting tasks. Their reverse tanto profile results in a knife with a dexterous and delicate tip and a unique and eye catching aesthetic. These fun and functional blades can be used any time a gyuto or santoku might be called for. Since this knife has a fairly flat profile, it is most adept at push cutting and chopping rather than rock chopping. It is more gyuto than classic bunka due to its lower blade height and longer edge length. The great looking hammered finish combines with the multi-layer damascus cladding to give the knife a true visual appeal. A good looking dyed pakka wood handle is attached to a partial tang and stainless bolster with three stainless rivets.

    Great knife, is a perfect length for my job. I'm use to 240 gyutos but needed something smaller and capable of doing detailed work as well. Loving it so far. First time owning a vg10 knife.
