ZDP189 is a recently introduced alloy made with Powdered Metallurgical processing. It is one of the most expensive knife steels to produce. The alloy is highly regarded for several reasons, including its wear resistance, toughness, and ability to be hardened to very high levels. A side issue of this, however, is the difficulty in sharpening by hand. But once done, you will have an edge of supreme sharpness and ability to last way into your prep sessions.

The smiths at Sukenari are particularly adept at using ZDP189 and they have gained a reputation of producing some of the best blades fashioned from this exotic alloy. The inner core of ZDP189 is clad with a softer stainless steel layer featuring a wonderful polished damascus pattern. The addition of this steel makes these knives really easy to maintain.

Professional chefs will really appreciate these attributes as they will be able to complete an extended work session without the need to clean or sharpen the blade regularly. They can also show of one of the most beautiful blades made to their envious coworkers!

We are making some of these formidable blades available with selected custom handles made by our favorite woodworkers. We will update the pictures and specifications to match the latest available combination.

    4  Amazing ZDP-189 270mm Damascus Gyuto, June 22, 2019
    Posted By: Dan Suh - verified customer

    The blade itself is gorgeous. Razor sharp out of the box (I'd say 8/10 max sharpness) and had me took a while to reshape the edges.
    However, the custom handle was a little too long for me and kinda bothers me on my wrist when I use it in rocking motion. Otherwise great product overall.

    I wanted to try a ZDP blade and have been wanting a protein slicer. It is beautiful- pictures don't do it justice. It is light, nimble, and well-balanced. Fit and finish are impeccable. OOTB sharpness about 8/10. After using it a few times, I thought I'd try sharpening it. I used a Shapton 16K glass stone on an Apex followed by a strop. I was concerned initially because I had read that it was a more difficult steel to sharpen. I had no trouble and it ended up amazingly sharp. Expensive but with reason. Highly recommended without reservation.
