Customer Q&AAsk a Question

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.
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.

This knife was a lot more money than what I wanted to spend but after recommendations from friends, I needed to purchase this. After just one use, I was blown away by it's quality. You have to use it to believe it. I would highly recommend it.

This knife has a very long blade but the knife itself is well made and very sturdy. The blade is firm and very sharp! It cuts easily and is long lasting. I would recommend this for any restaurant.
