The Knife 

From the Ryusen Hamono Website...

"— Dignified professional series —
The blade consists of VG-10, a high-end cutting steel material made by adding a rare metal vanadium cobalt to high-quality molybdenum steel, sandwiched between two sheets of 63-layer nickel Damascus, and was carefully forged individually by artisans, pursuing steel density and supreme sharpness. It is easy to sharpen and has excellent maintainability.
Furthermore, the blade has an ultimately beautiful shine and elegant ripple patterns, achieved by a special surface treatment technique original to Ryusen and a delicate manual buffing method. The beautiful ripple patterns on the blade surfaces are a proof of manual buffing, which are one of a kind. This is a professional fine product whose perfect sharpness and beauty created by our artisans allow users to feel their expertise."

The Shape 

The Sujihiki is meant for all things slicing. The long slender blade allows the user to perform nice long strokes and avoid sawing through proteins which leads to perfect, thin slices and no more tearing. Carving roasts, slicing brisket, thinly slicing fish are all within its grasp.
