The Xinzuo Yun 8.5-inch Damascus Chef’s Knife with Rosewood handle is a classically designed chef’s knife. It is a bit longer when compared to standard-sized 8-inch blades, but still, it is perfectly balanced and allows excellent handling.
- Even though the western style design is simple, the hammered style blade in combination with intricate Damascus steel grains pattern gives it a classy look.
- 67-layered Damascus steel blade with 10Cr15CoMoV steel (Japanese VG-10) core is forged with vacuum heat treatment according to latest industry standards. This ensures that the blade stays sharp and resistant to wear, while still keeping it flexible and not too brittle.
- The blade is a bit longer and broader when compared to smaller chef’s knives and is well rounded for comfortable slicing.
- A traditionally designed full-tang Rosewood handle gives it an all-rounded aesthetic finishing design and an organic grip feel.
If you are looking for a classical western designed Damascus chef’s knife, beautiful to the sight and feel, then buying this Xinzuo Yun series knife is the right choice.
