Tsunehisa Kamogawa AUS10 Tsuchime damascus Gyuto 240 mm (Chefs knife)
Tsunehisa Kamogawa AUS10, Japanese traditional handle,
Double-sided sharpened and laminated (Damask) blade made of stainless steel with a core of Japanese AUS10 steel. The blade is extremely thin and manually sharpened and has no thickening, which makes sharpening on Japanese water stones very easy.
These knives are handmade in Echizen Japan. The AUS10 core steel is forged between two layers of softer steel, this outer layer is made of pattern steel, which gives a very nice damask pattern. This Suminagashi technique is unique to Japanese knives and is a demonstration of the special forging techniques from Japan. The outer layer ensures that the core steel is well protected against possible damage and oxidation. The outer layer also has a nice hammered (Tsuchime) pattern, which means that products do not stick to the blade as quickly.
