The Ginga series is crafted with a ZA-18 alloy core developed by Achi steel in Japan. This steel is slightly harder than VG-10 and heat treated to 61-63 HRC for phenomenal edge retention. This core is then covered with 68 layers of Damascus steel giving a stunning pattern to the blade. The word Ginga translates to Galaxy, a perfect description for this pattern. The handles are African Wenge with a buffalo horn ferrule. These knives are a work of art, razor sharp out of the box, nicely balanced and a joy to use for both the culinary professional and home cook who appreciate quality
