Hand ground stainless clad aogami 2 with bolstered pakka wood handles made in Seki city Japan. These knives represent the overlapping of small industrial production and skilled hand work that exemplifies our favorite knives out of Seki.
Stainless clad aogami 2 carbon steel offers the best of both stainless steel’s low reactivity with ingredients and aogami 2 tungsten carbon steel’s edge life and sharpenability. The blades are finished with a symmetrical hand grind giving them great food release and reduced thickening as they are sharpened in. These middle weight knives have both an authoritative solid feel and an ability for precise work.
The core of these knives is a non-stainless carbon steel, it should be mentioned that extra care is required, it should be washed and dried immediately after use. It will develop a dark patina with usage, but any orange rust should be removed with a light abrasive.
