Small vegetable knife Senzo 33 layers
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.
