Availability: Normally ships the same day

VG-10 Cobalt steel is currently the most popular blade steel for Japanese knife, due to its very good edge sharpness and edge retention. However, in order to obtain the best performance from this steel, it requires very specific technical treatment. Throughout his long knife-making career, this is something that Master craftsman Mr. Nagao has always paid special attention to and he has developed a deep understanding of all the different steels that he works with.

As you probably already know, kitchen knives with Damascus blades are currently one of the hottest knife trends and there are many different styles and brands available. Many people choose Damascus blades because of their unique and beautiful patterning.

Mr. Nagao’s main priority is to produce knives with great sharpness and practicality and his attractive Damascus knives are no different. When you use these beautiful Hiromoto Tenmi Jyuraku Damascus Series knives, you will discover that Master Nagao has maximized the best characteristics of VG-10, such as its edge sharpness, toughness and long edge life.

Mr. Nagao confidently told me that that these are genuine Damascus knives. I agree, they are the type of masterpiece that can only be achieved by artisans who are willing to dedicate themselves to mastering the skills, techniques and materials that they use.

The knife has blade core of VG-10 stainless steel (HRc. 61) which is clad with Nickel Damascus Stainless Steel (Number of layers uncountable).

This knife also features full tang construction, a stainless steel bolster and black pakka wood (Resin stabilized wood composite) handle scales. This provides a comfortable, secure grip and good blade balance.

The Gyuto is the Japanese version of the classic Western Chef’s knife. It can be used with a variety of different cutting techniques to achieve a wide range of kitchen tasks and is suitable for cutting the vast majority of meats, fish, vegetables and fruits. The Gyuto is true multi-purpose knife.

My favorite knife

Having had a 270 AS I was lucky to purchase one of the last 240mm of this line. Hands down my favorite knife and will get a rehandle soon as if really deserves it. Takes a wicked sharp edge and holds it quite a while with occasional stopping. Sad that Master Nagao had no apprentice when he retired. Since these are now "unobtanium" I highly recommend buying one if it comes up in the secondary market.

Hiromoto Tenmi Jyuraku Damascus Series Gyuto

This is the finest Damascus knife I own. Excellent edge retention and is easily sharpened. The layering is stunning and unmatched in my opinion.

Beautiful Damascus, VG 10, Perfect Workmanship

My every-day knives are attached to a magnetic knife strip, mounted on a wall near the usual work surface in our kitchen. Mr Nagao’s VG 10 Damascus “Tenmi-Jyuraku” features among them. When I’m using them, friends ask about them; when we’re just milling around in the kitchen, these are the ones they point to and asked about. They’re beautiful to look at. Even the Japanese-only inscription is embedded into the knife, rather than being lasered, or stamped, on once finished – a quality touch I much prefer. I have about a dozen Hiromoto knifes – everything about them makes them a joy to use. The Gyuto is just such a versatile knife. When I’m not using the mighty 300mm TD-6 for slicing thin veal escalopes or separating sirloin steaks with a single movement, I feel like a gladiator in the kitchen. Mr Nagao strived for constant improvement throughout his working life. These last knives are, thus, probably his finest examples. Get one while you still can.
