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.
The very big kitchen knife similar to the European chef knife.
In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
