If you like the recent Damascus pattern hard steel Japanese style knives, but wish you can have the big name recognition without spending a lot, then Henckels Miyabi Kaizen 8" Chef's knife maybe is for you. Often, price reductions are for some odd shape, odd size knives, not this time. The 8” Chef’s knife is on sale. Really on sale.
Damascus pattern, VG-10 steel hardened to HRC 60, acute angle at 9-12°, D-shape handle for $99 (free shipping from some sites too).
Not actually recommending this knife over others, just trying to notify the sale.
