This super sharp series of knives is made by the Satake Forge in Seki City, Gifu, Japan, using a High Carbon Stainless Steel that is finished with an inert black Sumitomo non fluorinated coating for both its aesthetic value as well as functionality (the coating prevents any reaction between the blade and any acidic foods). A solid design based on black. The refined straight line is easy to fit in the hand and slip resistant. (Art Deco style)
These kitchen knives have such high quality and are magnificent partners in the kitchen, is not a mere coincidence. They are manufactured in accordance with ancient Japanese traditions. 700 years of fine craftsmanship and development lies behind the sharpness and function.
The Knife Blade – The stainless steel blades are razor sharp. The unique skill of heat treatment and grinding, edging gives the knife the best possible function!
Care & Instructions – We strongly recommend hand washing and hand-drying of the knife directly after ue. For protecting the sharpness, never cut deep-frozen foodstuffs or thick fish bones except when using deba (fish bone knife), and never use it over oven flame. This will keep the blade sharp much longer. And this will not make the blade and the handle discoloured!
The Black coating will wear off over time and the blade should be cleaned with a soft sponge rather than a scourer to prolong the life of the coating. Avoid scratching the surface with metal utensils. The coating CANNOT be reinstated.
