More info

Each knife from the Wusaki Damas VG10 range is designed to meet the highest expectations of both professional and domestic cooks. The astonishing look of the knives will make your eyes shine since the moment you open the box. As for their cutting performance, the first cut will be enough to prove their excellent quality.

A smart way to bring the quality of the Damas VG10 series to your kitchen at an advantageous price is to buy one of the knife sets offered in this range. For instance, this set is perfect for your daily food cuts, and it can also be a great option to offer as a gift!

This set contains:

- 1 paring knife 9cm: ideal for peeling or making decorative cuts on small fruits and vegetables

- 1 chef knife 20cm: the polyvalent knife par excellence; it can be use for mincin, dicing, and slicing all types of foods.

The knives included in this set are the 2 most used types of kitchen knives. They are indispensable in every kitchen as they can help you to cut a vastly varied selection of foods (fruits, vegetables, meats, etc...).

Let's now discover the characteristics that make these knives so special:

The blade

It has a VG10 steel core with 1% of carbon content that is responsible for the hardness level of 60 HRC in the Rockwell scale. Such level of hardness prevents you from having to sharpen the blade so frequently. This type of Japanese steel is indeed highly appreciated by cooks around the world thanks to its capacity of remaining sharp.

The core is "wrapped" with 67 layers of damask steel. The combination of different layers of steel (otherwise known as the damask or damascus method) around a core whilst alternating between hard and soft steel gives the blade an original look by creating unique patterns on its surface. This method also helps the blade to have an optimal balance between hardness and flexibility.

Another important aesthetic feature of the blade is its hammered surface. It has been hammered with a press, and this creates patterns on the surface that are unique to each single knife. However, the look is not its only purpose. In fact, the hammered surface also enhance the blade's non-stick capacity.

Furthermore, the blade's surface has been polished to get a mirror-effect that ends up adding still more cachet to its appearance. The polished surface also plays a role in increasing the blade's resistance to corrosion, because it flattens the surface thus making it less porous. 

Characterised for its capacity of making clean and precise cuts, the blade has a a V-shaped edge that penetrates food effortlessly. In fact, the blade's final sharpening was made by hand using a leather band at a total angle of 30° (meaning 15° on each side). The result is undeniable: a sharp edge that makes cutting food a much more pleasant experience!

The handle

As important as the blade, the handle is also an essential part of every Wusaki knife. It is made of olive wood that has been treated to have a surface that is soft to touch. This noble wood, which has a fruity scent, makes a beautiful contrast with the metal of the blade, and the veinings on its surface are unique on each knife.

The original shape of the handle that allows you to hold it comfortably and firmly. You get to truly have the control of the knife as the thumb and the forefinger are able to keep great strength during the usage of the knife. As it is the case in all Wusaki knives, the handle is longer than the average so that it can be easier to manipulate. The final touch of elegance is found on the bottom of the handle where the Japanese character "Tiger" has been engraved by laser.

Because every Wusaki Damas VG10 knife is truly a piece of art, its packaging also has to be of top quality. That is why this knife set sold in a black box with foam inside to protect that protect the knive from hits or strokes. The elegance of the box makes this set a great option to offer as a gift!

To take good care of your knife: always wash it by hand using lukewarm water and mild soap. Then, wipe it with a soft cloth and store it in a dry place. You must also know that when you first receive the knife, the blade will be coated with protectio oil. This is normal, and all you need to do is to wash the blade before its first usage.
