Description

Blade is forged in hammered shape, made of Aogami super steel… the sharpest Japanese santoku knife!

Aogami super is the best carbon steel of Hitachi Metals and has maximum hardness in Japanese steels. (HRC = 65-66). This is Santoku knife made of Aogami super steel, of course it is very sharp and has high quality. Recommended for chefs who want maximum sharpness.

Aogami Super is not stainless steel, it should not leave wet. But it is covered with stainless steel, so most part of the blade has resistance to oxidation.

The blade is very hard but it is not difficult to sharpen with the stone. It’s easier than stainless steel knives. To maintain its function, it is recommended to have a sharpening stone.

Do not cut frozen food or bones, to avoid chipping in the blade.

(This knife had a red handle before, but now changed to black.)

Aogami Super is not stainless steel, it should not leave wet. But it is covered with stainless steel, so most part of the blade has resistance to oxidation.
