Product Details

Kasumi knives are handcrafted in Seki, Japan, by the Sumikama family, a 27th generation family of knife makers. Kasumi Damascus Knives are made from 32 layers of stainless steel folded around a middle layer which acts as the cutting edge. A super-hard alloy VG-10 is used as a core material of the blade. This knife series features the “KASUMI (haze) pattern,” that emerges in forging a blade consisting of 32 layers of stainless steel holding the core material. Carefully finished by professionals, the sharp cut of this KASUMI knife lasts longer than any other knife, even allowing for constant use. In 2002, the KASUMI Series won the DESIGN PLUS Award at the Ambiente Messe in Germany.
Specifications:
  • The middle cutting layer is made of V-Gold No. 10 high carbon stainless steel, a material specially developed for the sharpest and strongest knives
  • Kasumi knives are tempered and sharpened to create the “sharpest kitchen knife out of the box” and the special technique for this tempering is a closely-guarded secret
  • The edge on a Kasumi knife is beveled like a western-style knife, however, the bevel is much larger than on a European or American brand
  • A larger bevel creates a sharper edge that lasts longer
  • The handle is made from multiple layers of wood impregnated with a resin, a process that takes at least 3 months
  • The handle is riveted with stainless steel rivets to the full handle tang
  • Hand made in Seki Japan by multi-generation craftsmen
  • Includes 1 x 20cm chefs knife, 1 x 15cm utility knife
