Damascus is a term with multiple meanings for a knife but has become widely known as a knife with a hardcore that has been clad with several layers of softer steel that are then shot blasted to produce beautiful lines and configurations along the blade. The Aranami knives are more of a “True” Damascus knife. Multiple layers of VG10 and VG2 steel are welded together, forged, and annealed to form a blade
that is extremely light, thin, and strong with a striking Damascus pattern. This is also referred to as a core-less knife, since there is no core of hard steel, but rather an entire multi-layered blade of hard steel. The advantage of the coreless blade is its ability to resist chipping and deformation of the blade. It is also far more stable and relatively easy to maintain.

Long and thin, this is the best shape for the preparation of any flesh (meat or fish – cooked or raw) without bones. The slim profile presents a smaller are of contact with the flesh and thus reduces the strength of the vacuum between the blade and the food resulting in a smoother and easier cut.Function – Slicing and carving of meat and fish without bones.Normal length – 240mm to 300mm (a few smaller 180mm and longer 330mm are available)Tip: Whilst the 240mm or the 270mm lengths are the most popular select the longest length you are comfortable with. The longer the blade, the lesser the pressure required to cut the food and thus increase the ability to cut thinner slices. As this is one knife that is often taken to the table for carving in front of the diners, apart from the functionality, aesthetics should be an important consideration.
