Damascus - the highest series of kitchen knives Kasumi. Blades are made of steel "sandwich", in which a hard VG-10 core is wrapped with two layers of 32-layer stainless steel damast. The distinctive damast pattern is created by forging multiple layers of steel together, similar to what was done in Japanese swords.
VG-10 - a grade of stainless tool alloy steel created in Japan specifically for the manufacture of high-grade blades and knives. The steel's recipe was created by Takefu Special Steel co. Ltd, whose headquarters are located in Takefu, Fukui Prefecture. Initially used in the production of kitchen knives, it quickly found use as an excellent material for utility blades. Due to import restrictions, almost all knives made of VG-10 steel are produced in Seki, Japan.
Blade - extremely sharp with a Santoku shape, ideal for all kinds of kitchen work. The highly hardened VG-10 core has been sandwiched between two layers of 32-layer stainless steel damast, whose function is to protect the core from corrosion and mechanical damage. The blade was brought out with a Full Flat Grind, which guarantees excellent cutting properties.
Handle - made of laminated pakka wood. Ergonomically shaped, allows long work without hand fatigue. Resistant to high temperatures and aggressive cleaning chemicals.
The knife can be cleaned in the dishwasher, however, hand washing in a mild detergent is recommended to prolong its life.
Made in Japan
Kasumi is a spring mist, a well-known phenomenon in Japan that settles over the mountains and sheltered valleys of rural Japan. The pattern on the blade tries to convey the beauty and mystery of this phenomenon. Kasumi knives are manufactured in Seki City famous for producing the highest quality knives.
