Damascus Japanese 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.

Stunning Knife!” by Allen Fairhurst
I have the vegetable (Nigiri) knife from this range and I love it (see review) and now I'm the proud owner of this model. These knives are stunning! They retain their edge and are beautifully balanced and look amazing too! A genuinely professional knife and unbeatable value for money.

awesome knife” by Graham Colvin
Again, wow, after receiving the fillet knife (see review! ) I knew this would be quality but to hold in your hand its truly an object of beauty, well balanced and weighted, very sharp and precise with a touch of flexibility, perfect for me. I feel price is a bit of an issue BUT YOU DO get what you pay for, just may take me a long while to afford them all (money of vouchers greatfully accepted!!),.. once again lakeland, fantastic products.
