Tamahagane San Kyoto 21cm Chef's Knife SNK-1105

Traditional Japanese swords are made from a material called Tamahagane, a carbon steel smelted in a clay furnace for over three days. The process of producing Tamahagane steel is over a thousand years old and has lent its name to this superb range of knives.

63 layers of steel were thinned to 2mm from 20mm by a repeated rolling process. After this rolling process, the core material of VG5 steel reaches a hardness of 59-60 degrees Rockwell, with a thickness of 0.65mm. Meanwhile, the outer 62 layers of softer SUS410 steel retain their hardness level of 28-32 degrees Rockwell and provide a degree of flexibility. The resulting blade is sharper and retains its sharpness for longer than a normal solid blade knife.

The handle is made from Micarta - strongly compressed laminated linen. It will fit most hands very comfortably, and is weighted to be well balanced. Hand washing is recommended. Please do not use in a dishwasher.

    My partner and I have purchased the majority of a full set of these knives - they are just out of this world. We agonised over 'the perfect knife' for many months before finally settling on Tamahagane San Koyoto blades. They are just the right weight with a perfect balance; they are beautiful to look at and an absolute joy to use. These make Global knives look like they are from the pound shop. I would not now buy any other knife as long as I live!
