Finest Japanese knife making craftsmanship creates flowing and exquisite patterns known as “Damascus” by alternating 33 layers of soft low-carbon stainless steel and hard high-carbon stainless steel. Its soft and hard layer structure realizes higher strength and rigidity than general 3-ply steels. These Damascus pattern is appeared by random blow with craftsman handwork, so each one has unique pattern. The blade uses VG10 steel for the core blade clad with multi-layer steel for luxuriate rigidity and hardness. The handle is made of Walnut tree.
The material used for the blade is clad metal manufactured using world-leading techniques by local companies in Echizen, which has extensive experience in this field. Clad metal is produced by forging different layers of metal together, taking advantage of the strength of each piece as an integrated unit while ensuring any weaknesses are balanced out by each layer. The steel is composed of a perfect blend that produces a long-lasting, greatly long-sharpness, hard to bend or break, and rust resistant.
VG10 stainless cutting steel is made from strictly selected pure iron that is worked using an optimal blend to produce an extremely sharp high-quality cutting steel manufactured using the finest steel processing technology . Its high corrosion resistance means that it is rust resistant and its superior abrasion resistance ensures that it retains its sharp edge.
Japanese traditional of wooden handle series debut in 2012. Unique colors and patterns exist on both the blades and handles. These are uniquely beautiful products with Chinise quince, Walnut, and Maple tree for wood handles.
