Gingami 3 is categorized to stainless steel for its 13-14.5% Chromium blending ratio. Although it’s a corrosion-resistant stainless steel, actual feel of cutting is closer to the high-end carbon steel, The edge is not slippy but significantly grabbing object fibers.

Another reason why professional chef selects Gingami 3 is a good affinity to whetstones at hand re-sharpening. The combination with the soft stainless SUS405 outer layer provides further easiness to the blade sharpening. Neo-Classic Nashiji finish gives irresistible appeal to the series as well. The combination with the soft stainless SUS405 outer layer provides further easiness to the blade sharpening.

The Japanese term “Nashiji” (English: Pear skin pattern) refers to the result of a technique that appears to leave the surface finish of a blade looking unfinished and rustic.

Beautiful knife, feels bulky

The Nashiji blade design is really beautiful and looks good. As arrived there was a relatively strong black line between the center silver steel #3 and the surrounding layer. I managed to polish it away with some efforts, which improved the appearance. Also the blade got nicely sharp by using a #6000 wetstone.
After having used the knife for 3 weeks I found the Silver Steel #3 didn’t hold the edge so well and became dull. This is a kind of disappointment, since I had high expectations of this steel. It’s also not so easy to sharpen, because the blade would form a burr at the edge, so only low-pressure and more patience would work.
The western handle is nicely rounded, but appears bulky, probably 2-3mm too high. The knife is still comfortable to hold, so the comment rather refers to aesthetics.

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.
