Kai has created another innovative masterpiece of Japanese blacksmithing 
with its Shun Nagare Series. Its sophisticated design, the special properties 
of the materials employed, and a technically complex production process places 
this series of knives among the pinnacle of the luxury class. An artfully decorated, 
radial pattern of Damascus layers adorns the highly polished blades.

Kai produces the so-called "dual-core" blade of the Shun Nagare Series in an innovative forging process. Here, two types of steel with different properties are combined to form a 72-layered piece of Damascus steel. The combination of flexible and robust VG 2 steel and an especially hard VG 10 steel results in a hardness of 61 (±1) HRC. As a result, the double-edged blades have a particularly long-lasting edge retention, and excellent sharpness.

With its soft, rounded lines, the ergonomically shaped handle fits the hand perfectly. The forged tang in the handle lends the knife a robust stability and provides an optimum counterweight to the blade. The riveted handle, which is fashioned from mottled grey-black pakkawood - a waterproof and especially robust wood veneer - imparts a warm and valuable feel to the knife.
