This is a Sakai Takayuki Western style series that is resistant to rust. This series is called Ginga which means Galaxy, evident by the stunning visual patterns on the blades. The handle is beautiful Wenge wood. Wenge is an African timber that has a beautiful black and gentle color tone and a unique delicate grain. It is known as very strong and hard wood.
ZA-18 has features very similar to VG-10 steel. While VG-10 is the primary steel of the Takefu steel manufacturer, ZA-18 is made by Aichi Steel. The steels have a similar chemical composition, with ZA-18 having a slightly higher content of carbon, chromium, molybdenum and cobalt, and thus a little more strength, durability and corrosion resistance. The steel has been tempered to a hardness of around 61-63 HRC.
This series can be used widely from home to professional. Please do not cut bone or frozen food. It may cause the knife to chip or other damaged. No dishwasher please.
