Zuika Petty 120mm Powder Steel Knife
The Zuika Series Knives, made from premium powder steel and finished to HRC65, are among the hardest knives made. Their blades feature a central core made of Hitachi ZDP189 powder steel sandwiched...
Although the steel is very hard, it sharpens easily. We recommend using 4000- to 8000-grit stones.
Working in his Gihei Blacksmith Shop in Niigata, Japan, knife maker Atsushi Hosokawa has spent considerable time developing these unique Zuika Series Knives.
