Details

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 between two layers of SUS405 that makes them extremely sharp and durable. The carbon content of the double-beveled blades in this knife series is 3%. Each knife has an octagonal handle made from Japanese Zelkove/Keyaki with a buffalo horn ferrule.

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.
