Damascus 20cm Chef's 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.

Fantastic Knife” by Dyfrig
I bought this knife from the Chester shop about three months ago. It is a beautiful knife with great balance and it is very sharp and easy to sharpen. Just holding it lightly, its weight will allow it to cut through a tomato. This knife is as good as another I've got which cost over twice as much. I will be buying more from this range.
A note from the team: We're pleased to hear your loves this range.Our buying team have suggested the best way to sharpen our Damascus knives is using a whetstone at a 15 degree angle or use a sharpening steel. We wouldn’t suggest a generic knife sharpener for these knives
