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.
In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
