The Zuika Series Knives, comprised of premium powder steel and finished to HRC65, are a number of the hardest knives made. Their blades feature a central core made of Hitachi ZDP189 powder steel sandwiched between two layers of SUS405 that makes them extremely sharp and durable. The carbon content of the double-beveled blades on this knife series is 3%. Each and every knife has an octagonal take care of comprised of Japanese Zelkove/Keyaki with a buffalo horn ferrule.
Although the steel may be very hard, it sharpens easily. We suggest the usage of 4000- to 8000-grit stones
