Takayuki VG-10 Hammered Damascus Sujihiki
240mm. This great-looking gyuto
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.
For many home cooks the 240mm sujihiki
is their go to slicing knives. This blade glides through steaks and carves chicken and turkey with ease. This is the knife that you can reach for time after time, task after task.
This is a great looking knife that is a breeze to maintain, performs like a champ, and comes at a really affordable price.
