Limited model Shigami series 3rd Seiryu
In 2008, Zanmai applied the technology cultivated when launching various series and announced “Suzaku” as the first limited series 3 years ago.
Last year, Zanmai announced the second White Tiger, which was well received.
Limited to 50 sets worldwide.
Since ancient times, fictitious creations have been symbols in the direction, with
Genbu in the north, Suzaku in the south, Blue Dragon in the east, and White Tiger in the west.
Blue Dragon is the latest developed series with the concept of Seiryu.
Acrylic, a new material, is used for the handle, and the undulating handle is processed to give the image of a dragon.
For the blade, Zanmai chose the material of 3-layer steel using ZDP-189, which is the most popular for professionals and has the finest sharpness, as the core metal.
ZDP189 Powder Steel is the hardest steel material used in blades we sell with Rockwell Hardness 66 HRC + /- 1
The blade part is thoroughly mirror-finished to express a beautiful contrast.
The Wooden Knives Case is based on the image of an ancient Japanese paulownia chest, and Zanmai has prepared a very unique storage case that can store a set of four.
The serial number 45 of limited to 50 sets worldwide is engraved at the back of each knife.
Zanmai is confident to make it practical, but it is a limited series that will be developed as a whole in order to create a unique presence that is unique to Samadhi.
