These stunning knives from Hatsukokoro are some of the most beautiful we have on offer. With their combination of a dark, almost matt finish, down through the damascus layers to a superb shine against the cutting edge, the appearance is influenced by lightning.
Aside from beauty, the performance is awesome too. Blue Super steel is used in this range which is one of strongest performing steels in Japanese knife manufacture. As a carbon steel it can corrode, so a little extra maintenance to keep it clean and dry is required, but for that small additional effort you unlock the true potential of the incredible sharpness of this steel. Not only can Blue Super achieve arguably as sharp an edge as anything, but it retains that sharpness superbly while also being easy to sharpen when needed.
