This is a general purpose Chef’s knife for use in preparation of larger cuts of meat and vegetables.  The fine carbide steel core gives the knife very good initial sharpness and cutting edge retention.  The core is embedded in 48 layers of steel which create each knife’s unique Damascus-design.  Honbazuke honing (a three-stage grinding, sharpening and polishing process) gives the knife razor-like sharpness.  With no finger guard, the entire length of the edge can be used for cutting.  Avoid cutting on glass, ceramic or stone boards since these will dull the edge.
