Nicely ground and finished mono steel VG1 stainless with rosewood handle. All the merits of a classic stainless mono steel gyuto but with better edge formation and easier sharpening than many plus an excellent cutting feel with these fine convex surface hamaguri grinds.
Ground at the workshop involved in the old Masakane production in Seki these are nicely ground and finished. This steel can be somewhat prone to chipping if mistreated but the payoff in ease of sharpening and cutting feel is worth it. These are a great take on the classic stainless western handled knife.
