Takayuki Hammered VG10 Damascus Hein 300mm. This great-looking sujihiki
is made from the ever-popular VG-10 stainless steel. VG-10 is sometimes called V-Gold 10 and it is arguably the most commonly used stainless steel in the Japanese kitchen knife industry. There are several reasons for this, primary among them are its exceptional stain resistance and its ability to take a very sharp edge. Some VG-10 knives can be harder to sharpen than other steels but the smiths at Takayuki have developed a special tempering technique which results in a hardness of 60 HRC while being much easier to sharpen.
This is a great looking knife that is a breeze to maintain, performs like a champ, and comes at a really affordable price.
