Black finish is an old-fashioned Japanese style of kitchen knife made with a 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 super (blue super steel) 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.
The blade has a hammer eye pattern full and is a fascinating knife that features that can be used widely from home to professional. The handle uses Mahogany and Japanese Keyaki which is a precious tree with a beautiful hard grain of wood in Japan. Please do not cut bone or frozen food. It may cause the knife to chip or other damaged. No dishwasher please.
