The Grand Chef SP Type-II series achieve the three important functions for the first time. Extra razor-sharp, very light and surprisingly durable.
The knife is 100% entirely made of this special highest-grade quality material by Bohler-Uddeholm with the lowest impurities, that is forged in Japan to get higher hardness about HRC 61~62.
In addition to the better material, the blade is processed to get thinner for extra light weight.
So the knife lasts a very long time (longer than others!) as some professional chefs gave feedback,
"For the longer time I use it, I must have more understood the competitive advantage and sharpness durability and lightness of the Grand Chef."
In addition, the steel makes hard, sharp cutting edges with surprisingly easy re-sharpening, like Japanese traditional knives made of "Hagane"
The beautiful handle mounted with a nickel silver ferrule is made of waterproof dessert ironwood, the densest wood on earth.
Therefore it is difficult to process the material by machine, that's why the handle is made & finished manually by the popular custom knife designer, Mr.Sugihara. In addition, the eye-catching emblem on the handle is hand-crafted by Mr. Iura, the leading engraving designer, to lend a premium feel.
The handle is so easy to grip and it's weight is very well balanced.
