The SEIRYU series feature beautiful Sword-like Damascus-patterned blades with a core of Blue Paper (Aogami or Aoko) No.2 Steel, which is made from famous Yasugi steel, known as prime high carbon steel, specifically developed for tools and knives.
This material has highest wear resistance and toughness because of special hardness (hardness of 61-62 HRC). Very good choice for high end Japanese kitchen knives.
Speaking to the Ebony Wood handle, the Japanese-Style Octagonal figure fits better comfortably to your hand.
The ebony buffalo tsuba equipped to the both top and bottom of handle represents high-quality and excellent durability, that means made for professional originally.
