The Suminagashi series feature beautiful Damascus-patterned blades with a core of Blue Paper (Aogami or Aoko) No.1 Steel, made from famous Yasugi steel, known as prime high carbon steel, specifically developed for tools and knives. As you know, the combination of Aogami #1 and Damascus pattern is 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.
The blade is particularly suitable for the gentle preparation of foods though you need to treat the blade to prevent from rust.
Precious WAVE pattern
Speaking to the Ebony Wood handle, the Japanese-Style Octagonal figure fits better comfortably to your hand.
The Buffalo Tsuba equipped to the handle represents high-quality and excellent durability, that means made for professional originally.
(Please be noted that the buffalo tsuba (guard) is a natural product that may possibly be different from the image in color.)
Saya Sheath with Certificating Seal-impression
In addition to that, the Natural Magnolia Saya Sheath with Japanese Traditional Certificating Seal-impression is included.
We recommend this high-class kitchen knife series for professional chefs to enhance their art of cooking as well as for Perfect Gift.
