A polyvalent knife that every cook must have.
Excellent cutting performance and dazzling design.
The chef knife 20cm from the Wusaki Ebony VG10 range is the most versatile knife that you can have in your kitchen. It is a masterpiece full of outstanding qualitites: ergonomic design, long-lasting sharpness, and gorgeous look. This knife will certainly become indispensable for your daily food cuts. It is suitable for professional and domestic usage, and it can be used for working with a wide variety of foods such as meats, vegetables, herbs, and fruits.
With hardness of 60 HRC in the Rockwell scale, the core of the blade is made of VG10 steel. This Japanese steel remains sharp 2 to 3 times longer than other steel alloys found in most European knives. This is possible in great part thanks to its 1% of carbon content. Moreover, the blade is sharpened by hand on a leather grinding band to give it a well defined V-shaped edge that penetrates easily into your foods. The excellent cutting performance is a clear proof of the superlative quality of this renowned steel.
Robust, comfortable, and different from anything you've seen in most Western kitchen knives, the handle of this chef knife is made of ebony wood. The veinings on the surface are unique to every single handle, so no two handles are the same. The wood is sanded, and thus handle feels good in your hand. Last but not least, its octagonal design adapts perfectly to all cooks regardless of whether they are left or right handed.
Around the VG10 steel core there are 67 layers of damascus steel that give the blade an optimal equilibrium of rigidity and flexibility, but those steel layers also enhance the knife's overall look.
With its octagonal shape, beautiful veinings, and decorative red bands, the handle also plays its part in making this knife truly special.
Because of its fine details and superb quality, this knife is more than just a knife; it is a cutlery masterpiece.

Maintenance: the blade must be hand washed and dried immediately with a soft cloth to prevent humidity traces on the steel. The handle must be always free of humidity, thus try to wet it as least a possible when washing the blade.
