Like the nearly identical VG10 Gold knives also made in Seki City these Swedish stainless steel knives are easier to sharpen, have excellent edge formation taking really nice edges. Although they need a little bit more frequent sharpening they make for a low maitenence work-horse. Hitohira Imojiya Swedish Stainless series has good thin wide bevel grinds, a tsuchime (hammermark) finish on the damascus layered cladding, and a riveted pakka wood handle.
