caption:Clad metal for the highest quality

The material used for the blade is clad metal manufactured using world-leading techniques by local companies in Echizen. Clad metal is produced by forging different layers of metal together, taking advantage of the strength of each piece as an integrated unit while ensuring any weaknesses are balanced out by each layer.
Cutting steel used in the knives’ manufacture is produced by a company with extensive experience in this field, and the steel for the blade is composed of a perfect blend that produces a long-lasting and extremely sharp cutting edge. This produces a knife blade that is hard to bend or break and is rust resistant.

caption:V10, Finest stainless cutting steel

VG10 stainless cutting steel is made from strictly selected pure iron that is worked using an optimal blend to produce an extremely sharp high-quality cutting steel manufactured using the finest steel processing technology. Its high corrosion resistance means that it is rust resistant and its superior abrasion resistance ensures that it retains its sharp edge.
