Super-Steel Core Blade

An ergonomically-shaped Delrin handle is made of crystalline plastic for low moisture absorption, chemical resistance, and maximum strength. This handle guides the razor sharp blade for superior performance.

Full Tang

The full tang design extends the blade the entire length of the handle for exceptional balance and strength. A full tang allows for elevated safety and reduced risk of injury for a safer, more reliable chef knife.

Customer Q&AAsk a Question

Can this knife be washed in a dishwasher?
No, hand washing with soapy water and sanitizer solution is always recommended. When placed in a dishwasher, the process will often rust and cause damage to the edges of the blade.
What is VG-10?
VG-10 is incredibly durable, high end stainless steel with a high carbon content that is made in Japan. This steel features 1% carbon content; which is double the carbon content of some other forged steel blades. VG-10 is commonly referred to as a "super-steel" material because of its overall strength and incredible edge sharpness. Additionally, it's about half the weight of German steel.

Gyutos often have a reputation as being more fragile than a normal chef's knife, but this isn't entirely true. The M16125 holds an edge well, and the blade is relatively thin, so there isn't as much resistance when cutting. I tried using it on tough ingredients such as butternut squash, and it worked better than the typical fatter German style knives.

If you are looking for a high-quality knife that will do above and beyond what you expect it to do and that will last longer than you expect it to, I would recommend it to you. It is well worth the price.
