The Japanese symbol 'San' means brilliant and radiant in English and these knives are no exception with their beautiful hammered (tsuchime) matte finish and mirror polished edge.
These knives have a VG5 core high carbon molybdenum vanadium steel with 2 layers of SUS410 stainless steel are repeatedly rolled, thinning them from 20mm to a final thickness of 2mm, ensuring all impure materials in the alloy are extracted. During this process, 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. The Tamahagane San knives are hand sharpened giving a razor edge.
