Yoshihiro VG10 45-layer Damascus Steel Tsuchime Finish Wa-Gyuto


This product is unavailable

Crafted by Goh Umanosuke Yoshihiro in Sakai City, Osaka, Japan, the knife combines Sakai's 600 years of forging tradition with the ancient art of Damascus folding. It features a 45-layer folded Damascus stainless steel, with a corrosion-resistant VG10 core.

The blade is meticulously hammered to create a beautiful Tsuchime (hammered) pattern, which aids in food release during cutting. The blade edge is polished with a bright finish, showcasing the exquisite Damascus folding pattern.

Yoshihiro, a renowned figure in Sakai's blade-making community, hails from a lineage rooted in the blacksmithing traditions that originated from Tanegashima.

Sakai, over time, has become a well-known hub for high-quality kitchen knives, and this Gyuto is a testament to the unique forging techniques of Osaka's Sakai City.

Combining Western-style chef's knives with a Japanese touch, this Gyuto represents a superb blade influenced by Sakai's rich culinary heritage.

How to Maintain Stainless Steel Knives

After use, simply wipe the knives dry to remove any moisture. Do not use a dishwasher to clean your knives. If you plan not to use the knives for an extended period, it's advisable to apply a thin layer of protective oil.

Ensure you use the knives correctly, as they are designed for specific functions such as slicing, chopping, or handling frozen foods. Avoid using them beyond their intended purpose, as this can lead to damage.
