The Suminagashi (special damascus) pattern of Goh Umanosuke Yoshihiro is more beautiful than those of any other damascus knives. In addition, this Yoshihiro blade is made with a core of Blue Paper (Aogami or Aoko) No.1 Steel, known as Japanese prime high carbon steel as “Yasugi Hanage”.
Please be noted that the combination of Aogami #1 and Damascus pattern is quite unique and rare.
This material, Aoko #1, has highest wear resistance and toughness because of special hardness (hardness of 62-63 HRC). Very good choice for high end Japanese kitchen knives.
We recommend this high-class kitchen knife series for professional chefs to enhance their art of cooking as well as for Perfect Gift.
