VG-10 is high-carbon stainless steel containing cobalt, hard. The material is excellent sharpness and wear resistance. So spreads between professional. It is developed and made by Takefu Special Steel Co.,Ltd. It's Japanese company. This material is hard for professional use, so it is recommended to use Ceramic sharpening stone for speedy sharpening.
If the entire blade is very hard, It is difficult to sharpen. If the edge is soft, It is dull, and the sharpness falls immediately. So the hard material is used in the center only, the soft material is used in the side.

HIGH QUALITY COOKING KNIFE
This series knives are designed from the idea of suitable blade thickness for house use with theme of ''Tojiro for everybody''. It came true the satisfied sharpness from beginner to professional cooker by easy insert to food materials.
The blade of DP A-1 series is thin, so the blade can cut into very smoothly. I used this kitchen knife at home for about 2 months, because I wanted to experience this abrasion resistance. Then I tried to cut a copy paper, I was very surprised! It can cut still easily! Let's taste this sharpness! Dull kitchen knives waste time and power, and worsens taste of the food. Good kitchen knife makes cooking fun and give feeling of satisfaction!
