The blade has a stunning custom finish with stately atmosphere. Black finish is an old-fashioned Japanese style of kitchen knife finishing method. The method does not scrape the entire surface of the blade that has been hardened by quenching, but leaves the black portion of the side other than the blade. This blade is made of Aogami number 2 (blue steel #2) with excellent sharpness and durability.
This blade needs to be cared for more than stainless steel as it will rust easier, water should be removed immediately. It is a fascinating knife that can be used widely from home to professional. Please do not cut bone or frozen food. It may cause the knife to chip or other damaged.
