Will the knife be the same as shown the pictures? 

We focus on making high-end handmade knives. The natural texture of wood and forged Damascus steel are different from each other. Each knife, before shipment has to pass three quality control tests.


  • VG10 Steel:  Stainless Steel produced in Japan. The name stands for V Gold 10 ("gold" meaning quality). Made by Takefu Special Steel Company, VG10 steel is a favourite by chefs for its balance as a hard working knife and durability in that its edge can withstand long shifts. Typically, the steel has a HRC of 60. The unique Damascus wavy pattern showcases the stunning craftsmanship and artistic personality
  • Beautiful Aesthetic: We like to keep this knife a treasure amongst your other knives by supplying you a complimentary handmade tanned leather sheath that will age over time like a fine wine adding to its incredible beauty to keep it in pristine condition. 
  • Hammered Surfacewith beautiful and changeable lines on it, the ancient Japanese technique prevents vegetables from sticking to the surface of the knife making it a DREAM to cut with. It will honestly be a work of art in your kitchen.
  • High Rust Resistance: With VG10 you get the hardness of carbon steel but the corrosion resistance of stainless. This makes it great for frequently used cooking knives.
  • Gorgeous Handle:  The handle is hand polished by experienced craftsmen. The ergonomic handle design will create a comfortable grip and provide you with the best agility of cutting. The slight curve in the handle ensures the perfect slice every single time regardless of your preferred grip. The groove at the base of the knife allows your index finger to fit perfectly when holding the knife.
  • Easy to clean: A simple brush of the knife with a wet sponge does the trick. Please remember to dry the knife properly to take care of it. 
  • Awesome gift: Damascus kitchen chef knife arrives with an elegant gift box, making it the perfect present for your partner, parents, chefs, friends or even to spoil yourself!
