JKC Special 20th Anniversary Collection
We wanted to create a knife that would feel familiar to Western hands with an exceptional edge capable of maintaining the integrity of even the most challenging ingredients and we feel the Tamahagane Collection fulfils this demanding remit. The word tamahagane refers to the central core of a samurai sword which had to be both strong and outrageously sharp.
