Looks like it's from the Asai damascus line. Found at Epic Edge and JCK:

As for which steel it is? No idea.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

It's a Masami Azai Wa Hocho Santoku 16,5 cm and the core is vg10, if you need more information you just have to ask :doublethumbsup:

Well done! Yup, the kanji's the same. Asai or Masami Azai. You can see clearly on some of the photos here too: http://gx2.japan-messer-shop.de/index.php?cat=c54_Masami-Azai-Wa-Hocho-Masami-Azai-Wa-Hocho.html
