Stainless Chef Knife (Stain Finish)
Tsurugi Kenshin Wa-Gyuto has a harmonized blend of Western and Japanese attributes with stainless steel used as outer layer and Blue Steel No.2 (Aogami No.2), which is chrome-added Japanese steel having superior strength, toughness and rust-resistant quality, used as core material.
As for the handle, a Japanese style octagonal-shaped design has been adopted.
A thin sharp-edged blade, which is a feature of Tsurugi Kenshin knives, gives a sharp-clean cut and is highly tough.
