The Suminagashi series feature beautiful Damascus-patterned blades with a core of Blue Paper (Aogami or Aoko) No.1 Steel,
which is "Aoko" or Blue Paper (Aogami) No.1 Steel Knife, made from famous Yasugi steel, known as prime high carbon steel, specifically developed for tools and knives.
This material 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.
Speaking to the precious Ebony handle, the two beautiful Buffalo-horn Tsuba guards equipped at both ends, represent high-quality and excellent durability. That means made for professional originally.
The handle shape of Japanese-Style Octagonal figure fits better comfortably to your hand.
(Please be noted that the buffalo tsuba (guard) is a natural product that may possibly be different from the image in color.)
We recommend this high-class kitchen knife series for professional chefs to enhance their art of cooking as well as for Perfect Gift.
