Yonedas Okami Chef Knife


Okami means Wolf in Japanese, the houndstooth pattern of the Damascus cladding is reminiscent of a pack of wolves on the hunt.  Wolves hunt in packs, but with this knife, you can work alone to take down any vegetable or protein.  The 10” blade is long enough for the biggest jobs, whether it be slicing a big piece of meat or chopping vegetables, this knife is going to be busy in your kitchen.  The extreme sharpness of this blade is thanks in part due to it’s VG10 steel core and 67 layer Damascus cladding.  Be sure with this knife to always washed, dry and then put it away, never leave it abandoned in the sink.
