The WGAH series is a top of the line workhorse. With a traditional Ho-wood handle and hammered (Tsuchime) 45 layer blade, this is a knife that looks great and can tackle anything in the kitchen.
45 layers with a core of VG10 stainless sandwiched between 11 layers of nickel, 6 layers of SUS420 and 5 layers of J1 stainless steel on each side to create the Damascus pattern and then hand hammered to create the tsuchime finish which helps release food that might stick to the blade. Hand ham-mering means each blade is unique. Hand engraved with the Kikuichi chrysanthemum logo.
Traditional octagonal wa handle featuring Japanese Magnolia (Ho-Wood) and water buffalo horn ferrule
Bevel Angle Ratio 50:50
EACH KNIFE IN THE WGAH SERIES COMES WITH ITS OWN SAYA TO PROTECT THE BLADE
