Pineapple Express III- 210mm (8.25in) Damascus Gyuto Chef Knife

“Pineapple Express III” 210mm (8.25in) Damascus gyuto chef knife. The pina colada of chef knives,  Pineapple express captures the essence of the finer points of tropical life: the vivid blue resin from the bolster is a cool ocean wave, with the creamy frosted mid handle taking you to the coconut shores of white sand beaches. Topping it all of at the butt of the handle is a beautiful, precious pineapple, golden with leaf sticking out like a glorious crown. This PE is imbued with solar power, such that the sun's rays shine through the blade of the knife. 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” (210 mm) long, with a convex surface grind.⠀
