Our Gonbei Hammered Damascus series are stainless steel (Swedish stainless steel). They come with ho octagon handles and are double bevel knives that can be used by either right or left handed users. Like our Gesshin Uraku series, they are good workhorse knives... tough and durable, easy to sharpen, and good edge retention. While not super thin, like our Gesshin Ginga line, they are by no means thick knives. We recommend these to professional cooks and home cooks alike as a good all-around knife.

Just as with many other traditional and cultural products in Japan,
Japanese knives offer simple, yet sophisticated beauty and quality to their users. It can take some time to learn how to handle these knives correctly, but it is a rewarding experience.
