The Senzo Collection knives are constructed from a 33 layer complex Damascus with a VG10 core clad (60-61°Rockwell) with 16 soft layers on either side. These outstanding knives exemplify Japanese sharpness but with more weight than associated with most Japanese knives. The surgically sharp edge is easy to maintain and will outperform most other knives in this price bracket.
The added weight has been achieved by cold forging the blade from a thicker than normal blank (4mm) and compressing it with 3000 pounds per sq. in. of pressure and then pressed again with a Tsuchime mould. The resulting knife with polished finish is both dense (extremely tough) and breathtakingly sharp with indents on the top part of the knife that reduces sticking of fatty, oily or starchy foods. The stainless bolster and oval hardwood handle from black Pakka wood have a thin red ring of a heat resistant polymer between them that acts as a cushion if the steel bolster and wood handle expand and contract differently in extreme conditions.
Note: Not suitable for cutting of bones. Never use the knife as a screwdriver, can opener or crowbar. Always cut on wooden, plastic or other soft surface. Intended for preparation of food only. This premium-quality knife does not belong in the dishwasher! Please wash it by hand in lukewarm water and then wipe.
The production of chain mail armor requires a lot of human handiwork. We were affected by an important fact that also changed the rules in many other industries. The labor costs of European workers far exceed the labor costs in Asia, even if you take into account the transport costs from Asia! For this simple reason, in the EU there are no workshops that manufacture chain mail armor professionally - and we are working with professionals only! Hobby-producers, who occasionally work in their garages, do not fit into our business concept. We are very sorry; we cannot make for you any mail armor made-to-your measure. Some re-enactors found a solution for this situation: they buy our imported standard-sized mail shirts (sometimes oversize or several pieces), unravel them and make tailor-made mail shirts, legs and other armor parts by themselves.
