The Kasumi Hammered collection is a modern arrangement of old-fashioned hammer knives with excellent corrosion resistance. This three-layer kitchen knife uses VG-10 stainless steel as the inner core and SUS410 grade stainless steel as its exterior, which provides excellent corrosion resistance. The blade is hardened to HRC 59-60 and has a chrome hammered, polished mirror finish and is sharpened to a precise cutting edge.
Very unique for a Japanese knife, the Hammered series is has a contoured black POM (polyacetal resin) handle allowing it to be moulded into an ergonomic design, that is long-lasting, comfortable and practical to hold
Japan has always revelled in its isolation, a mysterious land filled with mountains, dragons and the sea. The Kasumi has always understood to be a spring mist, a well known phenomenon in Japan, it will settle over the mountains and sheltered valleys of rural Japan. The ‘Kasumi’ describes the pattern on the blades.
