Shigeki Tanaka Damascus Gyuto
This Japanese chef's knife has a core of Japanese Aogami # 2 "Blue paper steel" (non-stainless) carbon steel with a nice Suminagashi (pattern welded / damascus) protective layer. This double-sided sharpened knife is completely hand-forged by master smith Shigeki Tanaka and is unique in its kind. The blade is very thin and manually sharpened and has no thickenings which makes sharpening very easy.
