Aogami-Super Carbon Steel | Blue Super Steel
Aogami-Super (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is one of the greatest Japanese Carbon Steels. In addition to containing more Carbon, Chromium and Tungsten than Blue Steel No.1, it also includes Molybdenum. It has very good edge sharpness and excellent edge retention, but is also capable of attaining high hardness without being brittle. Consequently, many knife enthusiasts rate Aogami Super as one of the very best High Carbon Steels in the world.

Kurouchi Finish, the unprocessed (black) part on the top side of the blade has already developed a dark patina, which protects the blade and gives it a traditional Japanese look.

The knife bears visible impressions of the hand-forging process (round hammer dents on the blade), which gives it a beautiful finish and also prevents food from sticking to the blade.

■Please do not use the knife in a twisting motion.

■Please use a soft plastic or wooden cutting board to protect the blades edge.

I bought this knife a month ago, and it is every bit I expected. The steel is been holding the edge nicely so far

Great knife for the price

The knife is fairly sharp out of the box and gets even sharper once you put it on a stone. Really nice weight and handling, has a comfortable grip and of course looms great.

Excellent blade

very happy with knife, maybe the sharpest knife ive ever bought, beatiful to look at and works well so far. weight balance takes some getting used to, as handle is far lighter than western style knives i usually use, this makes knife feel front heavy, but i think i will get used to it over time.

Super Sharp, but coarse Metal

The metal is super Sharp and hardened, but doesn't necessarily glide. Veggies get stuck to the side when chopping. I think I would get a softer and more polished metal that glides through vegetables.

It's an amazing knife that retains it's edge longer than most knives because of the hardness, but I think I'd rather have a smoother follow through on the vegetables and settle for having to sharpen more frequently.

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.
