Notify me when this product is available:

“Black Dragon" 10in (254mm) gyuto blade culinary knife. The glossy finish on this majestic blade reflects the full glory of the scales, cut from the hide of a rare and powerful black dragon. This black dragon has a twin, but alone is still a force to be reckoned with, it’s essence permeating the handle and the blade. Includes the sleek walnut saya shown. ⠀

The blade is made from VG10 core hardened to 60 HRC. Multiple layers of stainless are forged on both sides of the blade that protect the core and result in the damascus layer pattern. VG10 is a high hardness stainless that doesn’t require the maintenance or care of carbon steel. VG10 blades should be sharpened with a water stone, synthetic stone, or diamond. Do not use a honing steel on this blade. The edge angle is sharpened to 17 degrees and then stropped to a super sharp finish. The blade is 10” (254 mm) long, 2.31” (59 mm) tall, & 0.1” (2.5 mm) thick at the spine. Total length of the knife is 15.19” (386 mm).
