The main material that is used to make the blade is VG10 that has been made in Fukui Prefecture and the whole blade is made of it. This steel alloy contains a mix of carbon, chrome, molybdenum, vanadium and cobalt, which allows for a ultra-high performance material that can attain high levels of hardness, abrasion and wear resistance, durability, shock resistance, and corrosion resistance! While it’s not possible to add a damascus steel pattern to the blade, to give it a special design, this knife is a knife of true performance, and has been designed with quality and functionality at the forefront of the bladesmiths' minds, with an extremely fine edge of just 0.001mm for a superb cutting performance.
A high-quality blade for an outstanding performance and durability
