Kanetsune Namishibuki Knife Series
Namishibuki translates as 'wave splash' and this has been replicated in the pattern of the 101 layers of damascus steel. A special surface treatment has been given to the blade to further accentuate the contrast between the hard and soft layers of steel but also to allow the blade to slip through foods with less resistance.
The core material is made from a special high speed powder steel (also stainless) that both takes and holds an excellent edge. This combined with the overall thinness of the blade convey a feeling of sharpness that will bring a smile to your face. The handles are durable black pakkawood with red micarta rings.
This range distils everything Kanetsune has learned about knife making into a single series (more knives to come). No expense has been spared and all work has been completed by their most experienced craftsmen.
