A Japanese chef's knife made in the traditional manner. The blade is made of 33 layers of stainless Damascus steel. The core layer is made of VG10 steel with a Rockwell hardness of 60-61°. On both sides it is protected by a layer of nickel and silver. In addition, there are 15 Damask steel layers on each side of the hard core. Such constructed blade has optimal cutting performance with simultaneously maximal flexibility. The perfect glossy finish and the ergonomically-shaped-handle (chestnut profile) of black Pakka wood, perfectly fitting into the palm, make a masterpiece of this Japanese chef's knife. The relief on the surface structure is a tribute to the traditional forging techniques and is pressed by machine.
Wide range of uses - a universal helper in the kitchen.
The daggers are approximately made as follows. The basic shape of the blade is made by a laser CNC machine. It is burned from spring steel. The semi-finished blade follows then in the groove cutter, where the cutting edge and the groove are milled. The blade is then oil-quenched and tempered to the desired hardness. Then the guard and pommel is attached to the blade tang. The tang is usually peened at the end (behind the pommel) and the cross-guard hard soldered with brass. Hardwood plates are placed under the handle wrapping from genuine cowhide so that the handle is sufficiently robust for a safe grasp. The steels surfaces obtain the desired finish in the end - with a wire brush or with a felt disc with polishing paste.
