Beautiful and highly effective at the same time, this Wusaki Fujiko VG10 nakiri knife is full of qualities such great cutting performance, an ergonomic design, and impressive durability. Its gorgeous look makes it stand out from the rest thanks to its originality, elegance, and refined details.
The blade's core of every Fujiko knife is made of Japanese VG10 steel. This renowned type of steel enables the blade to remain sharp 2 to 3 times longer than a standard European knife. Thanks to its 1% of carbon content, this steel is also harder than the one used in most Western kitchen knives. Moreover, its V-shaped edge was manually sharpened on a leather band, and thus you'll be able to witness its impressive cutting performance right out of the box!
Made of olive wood, the handle has light shades and a pleasant smell that is typical of this type of wood. As it is a completely natural material, the veinings are unique on each single handle. In addition, the straight shape of the handle enables a comfortable grip, and thanks to the smooth surface of the bolster, you can hold the knife closer to the blade to have better control every time you use your knife.
The 67 layers of damascus steel around the VG10 steel core create unique patterns on the blade's surface.
A beautiful contrast between the damascus blade and the wooden handle gives the knife an absolutely dazzling look.
Finally, the Japanese kanji engraved on the steel bottom of the handle adds that last touch that proves that this knife is truly unique.
We advise you to wash this knife by hand and to dry immediately with a soft cloth. Avoid wetting too much the handle, even when you're washing the knife. From time to time, you can apply some olive oil on the handle to protect the wood.
