The Japanese symbol 'San' means brilliant and radiant in English and these knives are no exception with their beautiful Damascus pattern and mirror polished edge.
The VG5 core, high carbon molybdenum vanadium steel, is covered with 62 layers SUS410 stainless steel that has been repeatedly rolled ensuring all impure materials in the alloy are extracted. The blade becomes harder and harder reaching a perfect 61 on the Rockwell hardness scale. This technique has been perfected in Japan for over 600 years.
The handles are laminated linen Micarta, beautifully shaped and perfectly weighted and balanced. These knives are hand sharpened giving a razor edge. The Tamahagane San Kyoto Range are beautiful knives for both the culinary professional and home cook.
