This line of knives is hand forged in Sanjo City by a master blacksmith. These are slim, sleek and sharp, giving the name Inazuma (lighting).

The cool looking cladding with Nashiji (pear skin) and Tsuchime (hammered) helps with food release and is taken a step further with beautiful polished Damascus. The core is made with Aogami Super heat treated to 64-65 hrc with a stainless cladding.
