Spreading two blades is a process of striking with a belt hammer from the back and front with two blades stacked so that the two blades can be extended in the same thin manner.

Mawashi steel wearing:
After forge welding the base iron and steel, the method of crushing the whole from one corner of the steel into a rhombus is adopted. This makes it possible to make the steel thinner, making it easier to sharpen and attaching a good blade.

This knife maker is Sawakazuma from Echizen city, Fukui which is located along the Sea of Japan. Echizen knives have a long history, dating back 700 years. While Japanese knives as a whole are typically designed with thinner blades than their European counterparts, the knives coming from Echizen take that a step further and are even narrower.

*Please do not cut bone or frozen food. It may cause the knife to chip or other damaged. No dishwasher please.
