Wash and dry with a soft sponge, and safely store after use. Avoid cutting into bones, frozen foods, hard fruit pits.

Cutting Surface:

Recommended cutting surface: wood, rubberized boards and high-end composites, and quality plastics such as polyethene make acceptable cutting surfaces, and will help protect and prolong knife’s edge. AVOID glass, metal, countertops, and other rigid, non-forgiving surfaces.


We recommend sharpening all quality Japanese knives on whetstones, as we believe they yield the best results for your knives.

Great knife

Still getting used to the shape of it as I'm more used to your typical European style chef knife but I'm loving it so far.
Light, strong and versatile and keeps it's edge well under constant stress in a professional environment.
Highly recommended

A dream

I tested it for two weeks and i love it ! The price in Germany would been at 130 € and here just 80 !

If you like vg10 blades that get it !

I also bought the dp pro Petty 150 absolut dream too.
After a few days use as an professional chef I would say it's every dollar worth it.
Good cutting session you just go over your stropping leather and it's razor-sharp again !
