Kei’s Knives feature special-finished blades with a core of SG2 (Super Gold 2 or R2) Micro Carbide Powder Stainless Steel for professional. The blade provides excellent rust resistance and a long-lasting edge as well as its beautifulness.

The hairline finished blade with skilled Kobayashi’s technique provides sharper edge than that by other craftspersons, and the blade insertion point into the handle is — sometimes undervalued and overlooked — nicely finished to keep beautility.

The handle is made of Octagonal-shaped Rosewood with Red Wood Ferrule for beauty and durability.

Some says Kei Kobayashi’s knives can be the best as your important present because of his outstanding beautiful finishing work in details.
