An ergonomic design, long-lasting sharpness, and a gorgeous look are just some of its multiple qualitities that are appreciated by both professional and home cooks.

Characterised for its impressive hardness, the core of the blade is made of Japanese VG10 steel, which has 1% of carbon content. This steel has a hardness of 60 HRC in the Rockwell scale, and that explains why the blade can remain sharp 2 to 3 times longer than the blades of most European knives. Moreover, the blade is sharpened by hand on a leather grinding band to give it a V-shaped edge that penetrates easily into your foods. The remarkable cutting performance of this blade is a clear proof of the excellent quality of this renowned steel.
Made of ebony wood, the handle of this knife is robust and beautifully contrasts with the steel of the blade. The veinings on the surface are unique to every single handle, so you can be sure that your knife is truly unique. The wood is sanded, and thus it feels good in your hand. Last but not least, the octagonal design of the handle adapts perfectly to all cooks regardless of whether they are left or right handed.
The VG10 steel core of the blade is wrapped by 67 layers of damascus steel that balance out the hardness of the core, and thus make the blade less fragile. The different steel layers also give the blade an original look.
With its octagonal shape, beautiful veinings, and decorative red bands, the handle embellishes even more the aesthetics of this knife.
From the tip of the blade to the bottom of the handle, every detail makes this knife a special piece of cutlery.
