Are made from Molybdenum/Vanadium steel which is specially tempered and hardened to 58 ° on the Rockwell scale. To achieve this hardness, it is heated to 1050°C and after that it is cooled to below -73°C. This extreme heat and cooling not only hardens the knife, it also provides great durability and facilitates a razor sharp edge.
The entire blade, not just the edge, is formed using wet-honing technique with grindstones. This process starts with coarse and then medium grindstones to form the primary blade. They are finished with superfine grindstones that give the blade’s edge a mirror finish. Forming the whole blade using this method, allows the knife to be easily re-sharpened. This combined with the mirror polished edge provides excellent edge retention. The handles are made of anti-micro bacterial compressed laminated black wood and fitted with a ferrule between the blade’s tang and handle.

Arrives very sharp and needs no blade tending for quite some time, although I like to touch up my knives before using them. Good weight and handle-feel. Thicker vegetables will stick (potatoes, etc) but this is remedied by keeping the knife wet and keeping fast consistent chops. Also works well with minor slicing.
