SEKIRYU 33 Layers Damascus Stainless Steel VG - 10 Style Kitchen Knife 

These Japanese filleting knives are specially made to slice fish, meat or vegetables very thinly. Due to the open holes, air will remain suspended in the cutting process, so that the cut product does not stick together.

It is an easy to sharpen and rust-resistant knife that restored the image of Damascus steel, which has been prized in Western countries since its expedition due to its strength, beauty and rust resistance. 
In V-gold No. 10 steel (Hagane) realizing a sharp sharpness, we hardened two types of steel alternately by using a special technique and stacked 16 layers on each side to form a 33-layer structure. Furthermore, we created a sharp sharpness and superior sustainability by pursuing ease of use by using our own forging technology and "quenching".

The characteristics of Damascus steel have been restored in this Sekiryu knife, including easy sharpening and rust resistance. We achieved the sharp edge using special techniques by laminating each of the 16 layers of soft and hard steel iron alternately on both surfaces with VG-10 steel to make the 33-layer structure. In addition, Ohzawa original forging techniques and the “yakiire” hardening process produce a clear cut and excellent sustainability, while ensuring usability.
