ZHEN Thunder Series 101 Layers German Damascus Steel Gyuto Chef Knife 9.5-inch

A chef's knife is a cook's primary tool in the kitchen because of its versatility - it can be used for slicing, dicing, mincing, and chopping tasks. ZHEN 101-layer German Damascus steel is forged in Germany and then imported to Taiwan where it is shaped, sharpened, and finished. The blade is constructed by forge welding 50 layers of 410 martensitic stainless steel per side around a single core layer of 1. 4125 martensitic stainless steel for a total of 101 layers with a final hardness of HRC 62+, which provides high strength, hardness, and wear resistance. Each blade has its own unique pattern on its surface and an edge that remains extremely sharp over an extended period of time. The Gyuto style tip makes fine cuts and slices easily. The full tang handle comes in a unique pattern Pakkawood that is non-slip, bacteria resistant, easy to clean, and waterproof. The knife is designed with the professional cook in mind and is an essential part of every kitchen. Every ZHEN knife comes inside a Handcrafted box perfect for displaying or gifting. Do not chop bones or use on glass, tile, or Granite cutting boards. Hand wash with gentle dish soap, rinse, and towel dry immediately. We recommend sharpening ZHEN knives on a whetstone at a 15 Degree angle. Limited lifetime against defects, 100% satisfaction.
