Knife Description

ZDP-189 Gyuto Silver is manufactured at the smithy of Yoshida Hamono in Japan, a family company with an age-long tradition in manufacturing state-of-the-art tools and Japanese swords, i.e. katanas, by hand. Yoshida Hamono has a great deal of experience forging ZDP-189 steel in the traditional manner. The heart of the knife is made of ZDP-189 steel, which we selected because systematic testing has proven its superior qualities and long-lasting sharpness. The steel is laminated, meaning that the core is made of very strong steel and covered with an external layer of softer stainless steel. Such a blade remains sharp for a very long time: its softer external layer makes it easier to sharpen, and it also protects the core steel from external factors. The blade is finished with a mirror polish hairline finish, which is suitable for finest cuts. The single hairline, running along the length of the blade (just above the edge of the blade), marks the separation between the softer and the harder, core ZDP-189 steel. This Gyuto was fitted a traditional Japanese wooden handle, called Wa. The wooden handle is made of Walnut wood and has an octagonal shape, which fits well into the hands of both left- and right-handed users. The pure carbon content of ZDP-189 makes it one of the most edge retentive alloy in the knife industry. What makes the ZDP-189 steel remarkable is that it can be hardened up to HRC 65-67 without any problems of chipping. Manufacturing processes of this steel make it one of the toughest steels available on the market today. Serious users and professional chefs prefer to use knives made from ZDP-189 steel because of its superior cutting performance and longer edge retention.

Imperfections

The "ZDP-189" is poorly stamped on the left side of the blade.
