This Kikuichi Gold Elite Damascus Gyuto measures 245mm or about 9.5 inches on the blade. The hard VG-10 stainless core of the blade lamination provides excellent edge retention. The hand forged suminagashi (damascus) exterior of the steel sandwich provides stability, toughness and beauty to the blade. Finally the blade is hand hammer peened to give it a rustic look and also help prevent food from sticking to the sides of the blade. Finally, sanitary composition scales are riveted to the full tang. The result is a masterpiece of Japanese kitchen cutlery.
I just feel compelled to tell you that yours is the most ridiculously informative site of this nature I have ever come across.
