This is a food prep knife designed for users who value excellent sharpness and edge retention.

The blades are damascus-clad VG10 high-carbon stainless steel manufactured by Yaxell in Seki City Japan.

The hammered pattern on the blade reduces the overall flat surface area which aids in preventing food from sticking to the blade.
