The Urushi Aogami Super collection is totally handcrafted by a family forge in Sanjo city. The hardcore, which does oxidise at the cutting edge, is clad in soft stainless steel making a large part of the knife stainless.
The handle is individually coated with over 10 layers of Urushi lacquer by Master Fuki.
Handle: Urushi Lacquer Core Steel: Aogami Super Outside Layer: Stainless Steel Layers: 3 layers Hardness: 63+/-
PLEASE NOTE THESE ARE VERY HIGH-CARBON KNIVES WITH AN EDGE THAT WILL OXIDISE WHICH CAN BE REDUCED AND REMOVED WITH THE USE OF RUST REMOVING CREAM AND CAMELIA OIL WHICH ARE AVAILABLE IN OUR MAINTENANCE SECTION.
This shape has an edge profile similar to a Santoku but with a very pointed tip. Ideal where the tip is needed for very precise fruit and vegetable carving or piercing soft foods.
Function – Multi-purpose chef knife. For Slicing, Dicing and Mincing of vegetables, meat and fish.
Normal length – 160mm to 240mm.
Tip: With the acutely pointed tip more care is required than a Santoku or Gyuto to avoid breaking the tip.
