SAN Kyoto Tamahagane Knives

‘Tamahagane’ is at the root of the Japanese Samurai Sword. The name was only used for very high quality swords. The 'San Kyoto’ 63-ply blade is made by repeated rolling and folding the steel many times. This way Tamahagane is produced in the ancient way but with modern techniques. By repeated rolling, all impure materials are extracted from the material and the blade becomes harder and more durable.

For more than 600 years Japan has had the experience of producing the sword called ‘Katana’. ‘San’ knives are made from the knowledge that has been accumulated since then.

The characteristics of the steel are modified using plural clad material which makes the knives very easy to re-sharpen.

During the latter part of the ‘Edo’ era in Japan from A.D. 1680 to 1850 people could enjoy a peaceful life as there was no fighting and the Samurai scarcely used his sword. At that time it was very popular to decorate or trim the swords by various ways of etching, stamping etc., in addition to the function of its sharpness. There are many beautiful ‘Katanas’ which were made during this period.

Incorporating this fashion into the ‘San’ knives gives another artistic feature to make the knives even more beautiful.

The Japanese symbol ‘San’ means brilliant and radiant in English, thus the knives will shine proudly in your kitchen, creating historic and artistic ambience.

MATERIAL - 63-layers - VG5 core and 62 layers of SUS410 steel

The raw material of 63 layers was thinned to 2mm from 20mm by a repeated rolling process.

HARDNESS - After the rolling process, the core material of VG5 steel becomes harder and harder to be 59-60 degrees Rockwell Hardness with a thickness of 0.65mm. Meanwhile, the SUS410 steel will remain at 28 to 32 degrees.

SHARPNESS - This the outstanding feature of this knife. The blade is sharper and retains its sharpness for longer than a normal solid blade knife.

RE-SHARPENING - Easy sharpening because of very thin VG5 core with softer SUS410 outer layers. The sharpening angle is 14-15 degrees.

HANDLE - Micarta-strongly compressed laminated linen. The nicely shaped handle will fit most hands very comfortably, and the handle is weighted to be well balanced.

Hand washing is recommended.

Please do not wash in a dishwasher.
