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.SANTOKU (San – 3 & Toku – benefit): This is the classic Japanese chef’s knife.
