ECHIZEN KINTARO VG-10 NICKEL DAMASCUS SANTOKU 175MM

Hand forged by master knife maker Yoshimi Kato. This series has a beautiful aesthetic with awesome grinds, the pattern welded steel has a matte surface finish which makes the nickel layers in the damascus really eye catching. VG-10 is a high-performance stainless steel well known for its edge retention. The founder of Kato Hamono, Kintaro Kato began forging knives in Echizen City, Fukui Prefecture in 1928. His skills have been inherited by third-generation craftsman Yoshimi Kato, who is continuing to pass down their techniques to younger apprentices while making knives and sickles. Thin behind the edge and well balanced, a luxurious knife that will meet the needs of the most demanding professional.
