The Shigeki Tanaka Aogami Damascus series feature beautiful Damascus-patterned blades with a core of Blue Paper (Aogami or Aoko) No.2 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 63-64 HRC). Very good choice for high end Japanese kitchen knives.
These masterpieces are carefully forged & finished by the blacksmith Shigeki Tanaka with his own hands for their top-rate cutting performance.
Moreover, the blade shows its stylish arched shape(*), recreating the element of the traditional Japanese swords (* for Sakimaru Takohiki)
Speaking to the Magnolia Wood handle, the Japanese-Style D-shaped 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.)
We recommend this high-class kitchen knife series for professional chefs to enhance their art of cooking as well as for Perfect Gift.
