The Kasumi Japanese Chef’s Knife wins the top spot as a high-quality chef knife. It features a laminated Pakkawood handle, which helps the knife to have a good grip. It also has a bolster between the handle and the blade that adds Best Japanese Chef Knives.

The knife is widely used in commercial kitchens because of its strengths and long lasting sharpness due to its Damascus pattern. The Damascus pattern is common in Seki, Japan where the knife is made. The layered Damascus helps in making the blade to become harder and to have a longer sharpness feature.

The maker of the knife has high regard in knife making as the Kasumi knives are created through the traditional Japanese sword making techniques. The high-quality features of the knife are due to its composition, which is VG 10 high-carbon stainless.
