Hitohira NM V10 Damascus Gyuto 180mm Pakka Handle


This NM line is made from VG-10 stainless steel with stainless Damascus clad. NM refers to the first two letters of the two makers responsible for the blade. The steel feels incredibly finely grained, and we found that it offers great edge at around #1000 - #3000, with maximum edge retention.

It features a convex ground bevels, making these knives extremely thin behind the edge, yet they maintain good thickness on the spine for stability. We recommend these knives for both experienced users and beginners with practicality and performance in mind.

A chef's knife ('Gyuto' in Japanese) is the most versatile blade that can handle almost anything in the kitchen. Their shape and often generous edge length mean that whether it's cutting small tomatoes or portioning a large roast, you can do it with one blade. Most cooks have multiple chef's knives and it is not hard to justify getting one more when it has so much utility.
