CLASSIC DAMASCUS gyuto knife from SHIGEKI TANAKA.
Shigeki uses VG-10 STEEL from Takefu for his cutting edges - a hard wearing steel containing 1% molybdenum which gives it great toughness as well as cutting ability. Clad with 17 layer stainless steel damascus it holds a great edge and resists rust well, and fitted with an octagonal walnut handle it straddles the gap between Japanese and western knives nicely.
