    The elegant wave pattern called the popular name "Kasumi Nagashi" is one of the treasure which Japanese cutlery culture produced. Like the Japanese sword "Katana", the blade is made with low and high carbon stainless steel to 33 layers. The same wave pattern does not exist. Furthermore the hammered(Tsuchime) blade also feel a sense of luxury and more art of Japan and helps to release food. It is one article that can withstand use for home use and professional use by the forging.

    VG-10 is high-carbon stainless steel containing cobalt, hard. The material is excellent sharpness and has wear resistance. So it spreads between the professional. It is developed and made by Takefu Special Steel Co.,Ltd which is Japanese company.  If the entire blade is very hard, it is difficult to sharpen. If the blade is soft, it is dull, and the sharpness falls immediately. So the hard material is used in the center only, the soft material is used in the side. VG-10 is hard, so Ceramic sharpening stone is recommended for speedy sharpening.
