The Shiro Kamo Shirogami Damascus Gyuto is a very handsome knife that performs as well as it looks.

It is constructed san-mai style from a core of R2 steel covered in multiple layers of a stainless alloy. The combination of etching the upper part and grinding the lower area produces a dramatic look which is further enhanced by the semi-matte finish.

R2 is a high performance powdered metallurgical steel which is relatively easy to sharpen while being hard enough to hold a super fine edge. The core R2 steel is hardened to 62-63 HRC, which is quite high but not to the point of being brittle. Also note that because it is fully stainless, daily maintenance is a breeze.

The Shiro Kamo gyuto has a gently rounded belly and comes with an edge that is fairly sharp right out of the box. The classy looking ironwood western handle perfectly complements the blade in terms of both looks and balance. It is mated to a finely finished stainless bolster and attached with two mosaic pins. The fit and finish of both blade and handle are top notch.

This is a great looking knife that is a breeze to maintain and a joy to use.
