Arashi Handmade Damascus Kiritsuke with Sheath
The Ken Fuyuki Arashi Handmade 27+27 Layered Damascus Kiritsuke is hand-forged by traditional artisans in centuries-old family workshops using traditional smithing techniques. Designed in Japan and the brainchild of Ken Fuyuki, this knife has been years in the making just like the Ken Fuyuki Serbian Chef's Knife and is the result of infinite trials and errors. It couldn't have been more perfect. Each knife is completely handmade and hand-sharpened. The steel used is 27+27 layered Damascus steel with a solid VG10 core rated at HRC 60 on the Rockwell Scale and has an amazing edge retention capability. The octagonal handle is made from Russian maple sap solidified (stable) wood. Each handle is unique in looks.
The Arashi is well-loved by Ken Fuyuki's patrons due to the amazing edge retention capability of the steel, the good grip of the handle, the overall balance and weight of the knife, and the super sharpness of the 8 degrees oblique V-shaped blade. Further, the 27+27 layered Damascus steel gives the blade a beautiful look.
It ships with a beautiful saya (sheath) in a black gift box.
"YOU NEED TO HOLD A KEN FUYUKI CHEF'S KNIFE IN YOUR HAND TO KNOW WHY THEY ARE SO LOVED BY THEIR PATRONS!" - Celebrity Chef
HAND-FORGED AND HARDENED - This unique knife is forged and ground by hand and heat-treated using traditional smithing techniques. The ancient quenching technology passed down from generations makes the knife's rigidity as high as HRC60±2, which is much higher than the standard HRC52±2 for knives made mechanically. In addition, the physical density and rigidity of this knife are greatly enhanced by the repeated hammering performed by experienced blacksmiths.
MULTIPURPOSE - Could be used to cut vegetables, as well as slice fish.
LONG-LASTING SHARPNESS - This knife is sharpened manually by experienced artisans with decades of experience by using natural knife grinders mined from the Balkan Mountain Ranges of Serbia. Compared with kitchen knives made mechanically, the service life of this knife's edge is much longer.
HIGH CARBON BLADE - It's forged with high carbon Damascus Steel with a VG10 Core for better wear resistance, toughness, stain-resistance, and edge retention.
TOUGH, DURABLE AND BUILT FOR ANY SITUATION - Each knife is handmade to withstand even the toughest of situations anytime, anywhere. Due to the quenching methodology used by the blacksmiths along with the unique forming technology with different heating methods, the equilibrium between the rigidity and tenacity of these knives is guaranteed to make them more tough and durable.
