Kikuichi 5" Utility Knife - Damascus Steel.
The Knives are made from hard VG-10 stainless core which provides excellent edge retention. The hand forged suminagashi (damascus) exterior of the steel provides stability, toughness and beauty to the blade. Finally the blade is hand hammer peined to give it a rustic look and also help prevent food from sticking to the sides of the blade. Finally, sanitary composition scales are riveted to the full tang. The result is a masterpiece of Japanese kitchen cutlery.
This Kikuichi layered Damascus hammered Utility Knife measures 135mm on the blade or about 5".
