The renowned Ryusen series showcases knives crafted from exceptionally sharp VG-10 steel, renowned for its long-lasting edge retention. To safeguard the VG-10 core, artisans skillfully forge 63 layers of softer stainless steel over it, revealing an exquisite line pattern along the blade’s surface. A meticulous acid bath treatment imparts a distinctive matte finish to the blade. The traditional handle is meticulously fashioned from wenge wood, and each knife undergoes hand sharpening by Ryusen’s master craftsmen. This rigorous process includes a thorough inspection to ensure that every knife emerges from the box with a razor-sharp edge.
Please Note: The handle colour varies from light to quite deep ochre.
• Avoid chopping hard ingredients such as bones, frozen food, or any rock-solid items. Not dishwasher safe.
• These knives are quite easy to sharpen on an M150 Water Wheel, fine diamond steel, and up to 4000 or below grit whetstone (available in the Sharpening accessories section).
