Product description

This masterpiece is handcrafted by the Saji workshop. Hammer forged from new generation steel by TSS that builds on the famous VG10 that has been a mainstay for Japanese knives over 20 years or more. VG10W adds tungsten (W) to the already reliable recipe of VG10. This disperses fine and hard carbides throughout the steel and improves both wear resistance and ease of sharpening. According to the steel-works this new material has 20% higher durability and strength over VG10.

Of course Saji san is one of the first knifemakers to get his hands on VG10W to create Yuuyake (translating as afterglow of sunset). Saji san has created a flowing suminagashi pattern intertwined with layers of copper and brass. This is all finished with an aged cowbone handle (sorry no vegan option).

In comparison to Saji san's infamous R2 Ironwood series, the Yuuyake blades are thinner behind the edge with keener sharpness.
