Chief Kiritsuke 8" Knife
The 8” Chief Kiritsuke Chef Knife is crafted from Japanese VG10 steel and layered with 33 layers of Damascus Steel on both sides of the blade. These layers are folded and forged, creating a stunning pattern and ensuring long-lasting sharpness.
The G in VG10 stands for “Gold”, which refers to the gold standard of stainless steel. VG10 steel is produced in Japan and is highly appreciated by Chefs because it offers the hardness of carbon steel but the corrosion resistance of stainless steel.
Each handle goes under a special manufacturing process called stabilization and during which the wood is filled to the core with colored resin. This is what gives every handle its stunning look. No two knives are ever created equally due to the natural process, making each unit as unique as you.
The feather pattern of 66 layers of Damascus steel is uniquely exquisite. This unit is so beautiful that you may choose to never use it and just have it as a collector's item up for display. It will 100% be the most sophisticated piece you have ever had in your kitchen arsenal, guaranteed.
