Brieto-M12PRO kitchen knife series are produced by Kataoka that is one of the excellent kitchen knife manufacturers in Japan.
The blade is made of High-end Molybdenum-Vanadium Stainless steel to enhance the hygiene with Rust-resistance. The steel is treated by three stages of quenching from 1050degC, sub-zero treating to -73degC and tempering until the steel reaches a special hardness.
The surface of the blade has many dimples (called "Salmon" or "Depot") to reduce drag on proteins and help the blade glide through vegetables.
The handle is so easy to grip and it's weight is very well balanced. It is constructed of 18-8 (SUS304) Stainless Steel, an odorless, enormously durable material made of resin and linen that will last decades. The end of the handle is stainless steel with a cavity structure, which gives the knife both outstanding stability and lighter weight. In addition to that, the blade and handle clearance without structure is very hygienic.
