The knife featured here is a gyuto. The blade is made with a core of Aogami Super high carbon steel which is then hammer forged to a cladding of stainless steel in the san-mai style of forge welding. The strong outer layer is given a hammer finish while the carbon forging scale has been kept on the blade for that very cool kurouchi look. A nice maple octagonal handle completes this great-looking package.
