Features of the Shizu Hamono Gifu series

Shizu Hamono Gifu damascus steel with VG10 core

The kitchen knives in this collection have a blade made of hard and stainless VG10 steel, enveloped by beautiful damascus steel. This damascus steel is created by forging together two types of steel with different carbon contents. After forging, they are treated with an oxidising agent. The steel with a higher carbon content becomes a darker shade than the other steel, resulting in a brilliant pattern. The core of VG10 steel ensures excellent cutting properties and is easy to sharpen yourself should the knife lose some of its sharpness over time.

Shizu Hamono Gifu handle made from laminated hardwood

The handle is at least as remarkable as the blade. The handle is made from pakka wood. This is a wood and resin composite that is wear and tear resistant. The faceted lines are inspired by the folded paper shapes of origami. The dark handle provides a nice contrast to the silver blade.
