Each handle made of top-quality Masur birch is also unique. The structure of the wood handle is reflected through the interplay of lines and stripes. The warmth of the natural wood contrasts nicely with the steel blade. A mosaic pin finishes off the sophisticated look.
MicroCarbide Steel Blade
The blade core made of MicroCarbide MC63 powder steel is surrounded by 100 layers of two different types of steel with different levels of hardness. MicroCarbide MC63 powder steel is a high-grade steel for the highest demands.
The CRYODUR® blade is hardened using a specially developed ice-hardening process at -196°C that guarantees extreme hardness of 63 Rockwell and a lasting sharp blade.
A special blade treatment alters the surface structure of each layer, giving each blade its individual floral damask pattern.
This traditional Japanese Honbazuke honing gives every blade its incomparable sharpness. The 19° symmetrical blade is the result of v-edge honing.
