Damascus Japanese Vegetable Knife
Sharpened using the same techniques as those used to make Samurai swords, Damascus knives undergo a process of lamination where the super-hard carbon steel core is layered with 67 coatings of stainless steel for a distinctive blade that is strong yet flexible with a superior cutting edge. This multi-layering technique is believed to have been discovered in Damascus around 300BC – hence the name – eventually making its way east to be perfected by Japanese sword-smiths where the blade’s finish was aptly named ‘kasumi-nagashi’ or ‘floating mist’. Full tang with an ice-tempered blade, each beautifully balanced knife has a riveted handle that gives you excellent precision and control.

Cutting Edge!” by Allen Fairhurst
I'm a professional Head Chef and have been for over ten years so, as you might imagine, I've amassed a number of knives over the years, ranging from 'entry level' knives up to my collection of eye wateringly expensive Japanese Shun's so, when I was kindly gifted this knife as a birthday present, the pragmatic (snobbish) side of me started to twitch. 'A Japanese Damascus Nagiri knife for that kind of money! Can't be much cop' I thought. How wrong was I! This knife is now my number one tool of choice and my stupidly expensive knives have been relegated to my knife bag! Fantastic product!

love this blade” by Mr Thompson
I bought this blade to cut hard root vegetables, and also soft fruits. The weighting of the knife is excellent and feels very balanced. The cutting edge is razor sharp and cuts soft tomatoes and hard turnip with equal ease! I wish they sold a block of these knives.
A note from the team: Thanks for the feedback, I'm glad to hear how successful the knife has been for you. I'll be happy to pass on your suggestion about a knife block to our buying team.
