Similar in weight to many German knives, this WGAD series is popular among people who want a western handle and a Japanese blade. With its fine grain structure and great durability, VG10 is one of the best modern stainless blade steels. The hand hammered tsuchime finish helps release food from the blade and makes each knife unique. Hand engraved with the Kikuichi chrysanthemum logo. Comes with original box and papers. Has a couple light scratches, otherwise excellent condition.
