Tahoe - 210mm (8.25in) Damascus Gyuto Chef Knife

“Tahoe” 210mm (8.25in) Damascus gyuto chef knife. It cannot be overstated, the stunning reflection of natural beauty that this knife handle emanates. A wispy deluge of blue resin flows through the clear wash style handle on this knife like something a stream of water or azure gases, suspended in time. The flowing aesthetic continues into the raindrop Damascus pattern on the blade. Crystal clear blue waters on the most brilliant sunny day are the only competition a knife like this knows. 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 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.⠀
