SG2 Semi-Stainless Steel is forged with traditional methods of craftsmanship blended with modern metallurgy at extremely high temperatures to create a steel composition that is durable enough to be used in industrial machinery and power tools. With a HRC Scale of 64-65, this knife will make and keep its superior edge for an extreme period of time. SG2 Semi-Stainless Steel is a high carbon steel that sits at the pinnacle of maximizing cutting performance and edge retention like no other before it. It is perfect for those professionals who have daily high-volume prep work for extended hours. 

Semi-Stainless steel core is clad with Damascus stainless steel, resulting in extreme toughness and durability and ease of maintenance. The Damascus Steel results in beautiful marbled wave like patterns that extend through the blade from the tip to the heel, unveiling a new mosaic with every sharpening. Only the most skilled of artisans can forge together these metals in such complex puzzle piece formations to fashion knives of this caliber with the highest quality, blending aesthetics and performance. 

The Utility-Kiritsuke knife is a traditional Japanese all purpose chefs knife that resembles a sword. Its length allows it to cut sushi and sashimi in one stroke, and the wideness of the blade gives it the dexterity to do multiple jobs.

This knife comes equipped with a traditional Japanese ambidextrous Octagonal Premium stabilized Maple Burl wood with Sterling Silver Ring.

This also knife comes with a lacquered magnolia wood Saya cover, which is easy to clean and resistant to stain and odor. It takes a very high degree of skill to create knives of such exceptional performance and exquisite beauty with a steel of this caliber and is a testament to the extraordinary skill of the artisans.
