The Senzo line of Black Damascus VG10 knives are crafted by Japanese knife maker Suncraft, operating out of the well known knife making city of Seki, in Gifu prefecture. The core steel of the Senzo black is the ever popular VG10, an extremely versatile high-carbon stainless steel. VG10 is fairly easy to sharpen, low maintenance, and holds a great edge for a long time.
This line has a fantastic level of finish, and presents beautifully in the Suncraft packaging. These knives come whetstone sharpened from factory and are paired with a waterproof, durable octagonal pakkawood handle and white spacer.
These knives are incredibly sharp, and as such have a very thin edge. Cut on wood chopping boards only, and do not hit/cut/chop frozen vegetables, bones, or hard objects, as the blade can chip or break. Do not twist or torque the blade whilst cutting, as this may also chip the cutting edge.
Use a cloth with hot water to wipe the blade, no scourers or abrasives as this may ruin the finish. Dry your knives as soon as possible after washing and do not leave them wet for extended periods of time. Store in a cool, dry place.
No dishwasher use!
We recommend you use a whetstone to sharpen this blade. Sharpening stones are available on our website, and with a small amount of practice you’ll be sharpening your own knives in no time.
