Hand forged by Master Blacksmith Sirou Kamo this 3 layer clad Aogami Super (Blue Super Steel) collection is amongst the finest examples of Takefu Hot Forging. A very thin layer of Aogami Super Steel is sandwiched between Stainless steel finishing with black finish. This blade forged with a belt hammer first and then with a engineering hammer on an anvil to straighten and realign any distortions and knock out impurities. After final quenching, the blade achieves an outstanding 62:64 HRC hardness and the ultra-thin, light blade cuts like a surgeon’s scalpel whilst being extremely easy to re-sharpen. As the blade is constructed from traditional carbon steel it needs to be washed dried and oiled immediately to prevent excessive oxidisation. Without this care these blades will oxidise.
This shape is primarily for peeling, paring, or cutting in the hand rather than on aboard. Used for tasks where a larger knife would be tricky or unsafe.
Function – Primarily for peeling and paring vegetables in the hand.
Normal lengths – 90mm to 135mm.
Tip: This knife is a MUST for every kitchen and the ideal partner to a larger chef’s knife.
