This beautiful knife from Nigara Hamono is one of the most stunning damascus patterns we've seen. SG2 is a powdered stainless steel that takes an edge like carbon but is stainless. It's cladded between the beautiful damascus pattern Stainless. A rounded choil and spine paired with excellent fit and finish make this knife as comfortable to use as it is beautiful. The handle is made from Teak wood and black buffalo horn

*The Gyuto or Chef Knife is considered by many to be the most important and diverse knife of all. This jack of all trades style knife can be used for all kinds of tasks including boneless meat or fish butchery, vegetable prep, cutting and slicing herbs, as a line knife and much more. Typically ranging in size from 180mm to 300mm the blade shape can vary from maker to maker but typically they will be somewhat flat towards the rear of the knife working up to a "belly" making it suitable for rocking or push cutting. If you can only have one knife this would be a top contender.*

    • Dry knife immediately after washing to avoid corrosion.
    • If storing for an extended period of time use a knife oil like the one found here https://thekniferoll.com/collections/sharpening-accessories/products/tsubaki-knife-oil
    • For edge maintenance and sharpening use whetstones, strops, or a fine ceramic honing rod. Avoid oil stones, diamond stones and steel rods
    • Some high carbon knives will need to be wiped  dry periodically during use if cutting highly acidic foods to avoid corrosion.
