Every detail, from the choice of steel, forging, tempering, grinding and polishing of the 63 Layer Burst Damascus has been done by the small workshop of Kitano san in Sanjo. Every blade goes through exacting inspection before handle attachment resulting in knives of the highest level of functionality, aesthetics and ergonomics.
The handles and saya (sheath) are made of Horse Chestnut that is traditionally lacquered by hand with 35 layers of dyed Urushi tree sap and embellished with 24 Carat Gold leaf.
