Dead Man's Best - 210mm (8.25in) Damascus Gyuto Chef Knife

“Dead Man's Best” 210mm (8.25in) Damascus gyuto chef knife. This variation on the KRVR classic "Dead Man's Chest" features the same combination of scintillating gold leaf flake and dark resin, flowing from bolster to butt, where the specter of a lone skull rests, peering out of the clarity at the base of the handle. What makes this piece unique is the ashen color of the resin which consists of a dazzling number of shimmering microparticles, like fresh silt, smooth as satin. Includes 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 a 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 8.25” (210mm) long, with a convex surface grind.⠀
