The core of the 7.9-inch (200mm) KAN Core chef knife is Japanese special steel VG-10. The special makeup of VG-10 allows for a high hardness (59-60 HRC) without becoming brittle. This means our blade can take a very sharp edge and retain it for a long time, yet it also avoids chipping easily.
This core is clad by 66 layers of Damascus stainless steel, giving it strength, corrosion resistance, as well as a beautiful, one-of-a-kind pattern.
We balanced our knives right at the pinch point, so you intuitively use a blade grip (much safer, and much better control).
The Damascus pattern, polished finish and a beautiful dark ebony wood handle all combine to create a work of art you'll be proud to have in your kitchen.
We strongly recommend that you always hand-wash any good knife, then dry it immediately.
