Kasumi knives are hand crafted 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. 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. This 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.
The 18cm Japanese Chef knife is designed for perfect balance, precision and control it can not only be used for preparing both fish and meat but also for mincing, slicing, and chopping vegetables, slicing meat, and disjointing large cuts. The 18cm Japanese Chefs knife is the most versatile knife in any range and is an essential tool in your knife kit.
Kasumi Knives are produced with 33 layers of V-Gold Number 10, a high-carbon stainless steel that contains cobalt, manganese, molybdenum and vanadium. The result is one of the world’s sharpest and most durable knives, produced in the Japanese cutlery capital of Seki, which has been a hub of sword- and knife-making since the 12th century. Kasumi's production process – the specific details of which are shrouded in secrecy – evokes age-old techniques, and each Damascus blade is hand-finished at every stage of production. The brand's flagship product may be its chef's knives, but its paring, boning, Santoku and carving knives, among others, remain core components of this esteemed company's offering.Specifications
