They are often considered an art of their own since most of them are handcrafted. Not without reason, Japanese knives are chosen by the world's best chefs. Their blades are typically thin and delicate, and prone to breaking if you don’t take care of them properly — not ideal for the clumsy chef. Yet, if you put a little bit more care into your knives, they will pay back in magnified joy and satisfaction from preparing your food. They allow for thin, precise cuts and beautiful presentation, the ones you’d find in a five-star sushi restaurant. The metal combination fuses the high-quality sharpness and sturdiness of VG10 steel with the corrosion-fighting properties of SUS430 and SUS431 (same material used in aerospace equipment) stainless steel. With a Rockwell Hardness score of over 60, these blades will retain their sharpness for a long time before having to be sharpened. Why we love them Japanese knives' blades are thinner and sharper than the Western knives, this lends itself to the precision and detail of Japanese cooking. This blade profile makes it more suitable for making long clean slices. The more acute angle of this blade means it is sharper and will cut through your foods with more ease. It can also make finer more delicate cuts. Double-bevel blades are easier to handle than single-bevel blades and also easier to sharpen. They are generally more versatile, as many are designed for general purpose usage. Super 67 Layers Damascus Steel Damascus steel is made from the ancient forging techniques of folding metal to create a sturdier and more effective blade. VG10 steel is produced in Japan, the G stands for “gold”, which refers to the “gold standard” that this level of stainless steel is considered to have met. Because of how well VG10 holds an edge and its ability to withstand rust, VG10 has become the most popular steel for professional chefs. Unique ergonomic handle Unique shank shape design, comfortable, and ergonomic. The materials of the handle are mainly: imported resin, strictly selected color wood, textured wood, white shadow wood, solidified stable wood, decorated with double copper rings that will not rust.

That means wiping down your knife while you cook. It may seem tedious at first, but it will keep your blade from rusting. This is especially true when working with acidic foods, like lemons and tomatoes, which tend to be particularly tough on carbon steel. Patina vs. Rust Over time, your knife will develop a gray-blue patina. Don’t freak! There’s a difference between patina and rust. Patina = good; rust = bad. A healthy patina actually protects your knife from rust. Keep Your Knife Honed Regular honing helps keep your blade (carbon steel or other) balanced, which makes cutting easier. Honing, which essentially just re-centers your knife, can be done daily; sharpening, which involves shaving off part of your knife to create a fresh edge, should be done considerably less frequently (maybe twice a year). If not used for a long time it is recommended to apply some oil and keep in a dry place for storage.
