Made in Japan.
This Chefs Knife measures 210mm or about 8" on the blade. This Takayuki limited production line is crafted out of a 63-layer Damascus Stainless Steel, which realizes a beautiful figure with a seriously sharp edge and excellent edge retention. Quenched in the equivalent process of Yakiire for high-class carbon steel, the blade got special hard and durable. The handle has great size and very angular profile, for excellent comfort and control. The blue/black wooden beautiful handle is important to create a high-quality product.
