Yonedas Raion Slicer


Raion means Lion in Japanese, and this knife is designed with a beautiful tooth patterned Damascus to emulate the mouth of a carnivore.  With the lion being the king of the jungle, the name seemed fitting for the king of the knives!  The massive blade of the Raion slicer is designed to be extremely sharp.  The VG10 Core is a core that will last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance.  The stainless cladding on the outside, protects the inner core from damage, but when using this knife, please use extreme caution.  Only cut on soft surfaces like wood or plastic cutting boards and do not attempt to cut through bones.  This knife will slice through meat like it’s not even there, but hard surfaces can chip the surface of the blade.
