The central core material SKD11 (alloy tool steel) used for the blade edge is a performance steel that is incredibly rich in Carbon equal to the famed Yasuki Aogami, and is tempered to the Rockwell 62-64 for exceptional sharpness and edge holding and properties.

Originally SKD11 steel was created for cutting metal. Its suitability for knife edges' comes from its resistance to abrasion and its ability to hold a cutting edge.
Also its high content of Chromium greatly contributes to the blade's anti-corrosion. Damascus outer Pure-Nickel layers will never rust.
This 73 layered material produces a rust resistant blade that will maintain its beautiful pattern perfection over the years.

The blade is a triple lamination that reproduces a traditional Damascus surface. The two Damascus outer layers are each made of 36 alternating forged layers of Pure-Nickel and SUS410 stainless steel polished to reveal a pattern that is as unique as a fingerprint.

Damascus is a laminated steel knife made of several layers of different steel materials. The center of the blade is made of hard steel for sharpness, and both sides are covered with multiple soft steel materials. The multiple steels are metallurgically joined, not by plating or glue. The more the blade is forged, the more complex the ripples become, and the more beautiful the unique grain pattern becomes.

Thanks to the features of the hand-sharpened blade, the knives have an incredible sharpness, which allows them, like no other knives, to easily cut even the hardest products.

It really is a great knife. The fit and finish are immaculate. It came sharp enough to plunge cut paper. The balance is perfect, and the damascus steel is beautiful. Definitely would purchase again.

Product Features

Handmade Forging

With the traditional forging process, the molecules of the iron material are finely tuned, leading to the completion of a "living kitchen knife" that breathes.

Durability

The process of heating and forging each material for mold making is repeated three or four times to quickly shape the blade and create durability before the carbon is released from the steel causing it to lose its original strength.

Sharpness

The blade is the most important factor in achieving the best possible sharpness. It is polished in our own blade factory to produce uncompromising sharpness.

Handle

The highest priority is placed on sturdiness, a sense of luxury, and a shape that is easy to grip and does not cause fatigue even after long hours of use.
