Zhen 3-Layer VG-10 Forged Kitchen Knives
Zhen 3-Layer VG-10 Forged Kitchen Knives

Hardened Japanese Steel in 9 Styles

Made from three layers of forged steel, these kitchen knives are tough as nails. The core is made from VG-10: a high-carbon content steel from Japan. It’s hardened to over 60 on the Rockwell scale for good edge retention after repeated cutting. For added strength, the knives feature a full-tang construction, meaning you can apply as much force as you need from the spine and the blade will not fail. The handles run the gamut—from TPR (a thermoplastic rubber) to oak wood to micarta. They’re all crafted for a non-slip grip, no matter the conditions. The base price is for the 8-inch chef knife micarta or the 6.5-inch cleaver TPR, but you can upgrade (or downgrade) to eight other options.

Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of nine different knives. The base price is for the 6.5-inch cleaver TPR or the 8-inch chef knife micarta. Pricing will vary depending on your selection. See checkout options for more details. Quantities are limited based on model. Due to the sensitive nature of shipping knives internationally, we can only ship this knife to select countries. It is the responsibility of the buyer to know and comply with all importation regulations and local laws. Click here for additional information.
