The Tsunehisa Nami AUS10 line is made with gorgeous polished Damascus blades and very nice solid oak handles.
The Tsunehisa 210mm kiritsuke featured here is made from AUS10 Stainless steel which is very similar to AEB-L. It's good stuff.
210mm kiritsukes are general purpose knives and very popular choice for home chefs or pros alike. They are easy to handle and very responsive cutters. This knife has a fairly good flat spot from the heel transitioning into a subtle belly and a finely crafted tip. It is perfect for all styles of cutting.
The Damascus cladding on this knife is stunning. The high polish and bold Damascus pattern, combined with a nice octagonal handle, make this knife stand out in a crowd.
