More info

This Tamahagane Bamboo Kyoto Chef Knife will make you feel like a real Japanese chef as it will be perfect for working with almost every type of food. The impressive versatility of this knife makes it ideal for cutting fruits, vegetables, and even meats. Not only is one of the most useful tools that any cook can have but it also is a true piece of art thanks to its beautiful and original design.

Whether you call it a Japanese chef knife or a gyuto knife (it's actually the same thing), this knife will surpass your expectations since the very first cut. From the tip of the blade to the end of the handle, its design will leave dazzled. That's the least that you can expect from this or any other knife from the Bamboo Kyoto series of the Japanese brand Tamahagane.

To start understanding why this knife is so special, we shall start talking about is remarkable blade. It has a VG5 steel core with 0.7% - 0.8% of carbon content, which enables the blade to reach a high hardness level of 61 HRC in the Rockwell scale. This high level of hardness helps the knife to keep a razor sharp edge for a long time. 

Another advantage of the VG5 steel is that it is more resistant to corrosion than the VG10 steel, which is used in a great number of other Japanese knives. Although the VG10 steel is slightly harder thanks to its higher content of carbon (around 1%), the VG5 steel is still highly robust and rigid.

Moreover, the core is covered with 63 layers of SUS410 steel, which is what gives the blade the original and beautiful damascus look. The combination of soft and hard steel layers not only improves the look of the blade but it also provides the perfect balance between rigidness and flexibility.

To have a great knife, you also need a great handle, and this chef knife certainly has one! Its handle is made of stainless steel, thus it is easy to maintain as it does not absorb bacteria and has good resistance to corrosion. However, the truly special characteristic of this handle is its dazzling design which ressembles the stem of a bamboo tree.

Knives like this one deserve and need to be treated with care. To preserve its quality and beauty, we recommend you to only wash it by hand. You simply need to wash it with a sponge, and once you're done, make sure to dry it and store it in a safe place.
