Sukenari ZDP-189 Damascus Gyuto 270mm Special Edition, Triple Spacer Ebony Handle with White Corian Ferrule

This Special Edition Sukenari ZDP-189 Damascus Gyuto is 270mm with an exotic K&S custom Triple Spacer Ebony Handle, White Corian Ferrule , comes with matching Sukenari Saya .

The Knives and Stones Sukenari ZDP-189 line is truely a beauty by the look, beast by the performance. The core steel is the most advanced powdered steel that Hitachi offers: the ZDP-189, reaching an unmatched hardness of HRC 65 to 67. This is acthieved by over 3% of Carbon content in the steel (White 2 has about 1%, Blue 1 has about 1.25%, that tells you something) meaning the Sukenari ZDP-189 will offer insance edge retention and sharpness. Yet it is a stainless steel becasue of the added Chromium. Overall, the ZDP-189 has very similar composition to the Cowry-X steel from Daido.

The ZDP-189 blade is forged with Nickel damascus stainless steel and mirror polished, along with the rounded choil and spine, super thin behind the edge, it is truely a master-piece from Master Hanaki Nobuo. '

In order to match the high level fit and finish of the blade, we decided to throw in our K&S custom handles: the ebony, black horn ferrule with nickel-silver spacer handle is a standard among all the K&S Sukenari line, along with a wenge-wood saya to make it a complete package.
