Gyuto Chef Knife - VG10 Damascus Hammered Blade
The “Tsuchime”(hammered) version features a hand-hammered blade.
Aesthetically appealing and functional, the hammered pattern creates tiny pockets of air between the blade and the food being cut.
This ancestral Japanese method reduces drag, thus preventing food from sticking to the blade.
What a beast. At first I almost felt too intimidated to use it, but now I literally can't live without this knife.
