The Elite Range From Takamura Hamono
The Suminagashi range represents the pinnacle of knife making for Takamura. Over a period of 20 years Takamura Hamono have perfected the art of forging R2 steel into kitchen knives. Takamura Suminagashi knives feature an 'ink stain' pattern acid etched into the alternating soft and hard layers of the blade. The damascus pattern is further enhanced by a light acid etch that brings out the beauty of the hammer forged damascus. The Suminagashi range features increased hardness with the added benefits of a fine grain steel for ease of sharpening.
The Takamura Edge
All powder steel knives produced by Takamura Hamono are ground to a razor fine double hamaguri edge. These advanced level knives are seriously sharp. Users must be careful not to cut dense items as you may damage the edge. We do not recommend these knives to anyone who feel their knife skills may need brushing up. If you are a little rough with your knives this knife is not for you.
