Tojiro Gyuto Black Damascus in 240mm (9.5") blade length is a unique-looking, high quality, extremely efficient multi-purpose kitchen knife. The excellent VG-10 steel with the hardness of 61 HRC is clad into 62 layers of softer stainless steel. The blade is anodized black to highlight the black Damascus pattern which extends along the blade. A lightweight, special looking multi-purpose knife for precision cuts!
The blade extends into a traditional Japanese round handle made of chestnut wood, with an emphasized angle for a better grip, which makes it more suitable for right-handed users. Chestnut wood is corrosion resistant and used for railroad ties in Japan. Additionally, fire surface treatment improves its water resistance.
