The VG10 etched damascus line is one of the classic offerings by Yohsimi Kato. The carefully forged damascus pattern is vibrant and elegant. The state-of-the-art VG10 steel is heat treated to perfection yet offers an excellent value for money. In fact I consider this to be one of the best choices for first time Japanese buyers seeking performance, value and the beautiful damascus look.

Care Instruction

  • Don't cut hard things! Japanese knives are brittle so bone hacking is a NO NO!
  • Wash with neutral detergent after use, and wipe dry;
  • Please don't wash knife with dishwasher, it will damage the wood handle;
  • Be careful not to leave the knife close to a heat source for a long time;
  • It is a lot more dangerous to cut with a blunt knife than a sharp knife!
  • It is best to sharpen a Japanese knife regularly on a waterstone.
