[SET] ZA-18 Damascus - Gyuto + Nakiri + Petty
ZA-18 Damascus knives by blacksmith Yoshida Hamono are such good lookers, and with great specs under the hood. Featuring 63-layers of Damascus cladding, stain-resistant ZA-18 steel (slightly better specs than the VG-10 steel) hardened to around 61-62 HRC, D-shaped Rosewood handle. What is here not to like? 😊
ZA-18 Damascus Gyuto in 210mm (8.3") blade length is the ultimate multi-purpose knife shape suitable for home users and professional chefs that prefer a slightly shorter Chef's knife. Due to their length and curved belly, gyuto knives excel at rocking and slicing.
While gyutos can handle veggies very well, they cannot beat the ultimate veggie choppers - nakiris! ZA-18 Damascus Nakiri 165mm (6.5") was made to serve one purpose one - cutting vegetables. Great for prep chefs and home cooks that prepare and eat a lot of delicious gifts from our beloved mother nature.
In combination with the ZA-18 Damascus Petty 150mm (5.9"), a smaller, niftier knife for tasks on and off the cutting board, these three knives will cover pretty much all the cutting needs in your home or professional kitchen.
Use & Care:
- Handwash in warm water and towel dry
- Use a sharpening stone (not a honing steel!) to sharpen your knife
- Do not cut frozen foods and meat bones
- Do not put the knife in a dishwasher
