The Kurilen Chef's Knife is another knife of the WASABI Island Special Collection, which should help you to find a unique and tailor-made knife for yourself. This knife has been designed with great attention to detail to ensure long lasting pleasure in the kitchen.
To provide exceptional sharpness and quality, a vacuum heat treatment process is applied by an experienced Master to wrap 73 layers of Damascus steel around a stable VG10 core. Furthermore an additional water cooling procedure is used to bring the edge of the blade to maximum sharpness. This ensures an astonishing San-ladder pattern as well as long-lasting sharpness with a hardness of 58 ± 2 HRC.
The ergonomic shaped handle is hand polished and mainly made of high quality Ebony wood. In addition, stainless steel as well as brass is used to ensure exclusivity and quality. The knife comes in a gift box with a finely crafted hand-carved Italian stitching, which is made of vegetable tanned leather. It is the ultimate knife that meets all the criteria to work in the kitchen with absolute pleasure.
Knives from this collection are the ideal gift for passionate and aspiring hobby chefs, making even the most demanding friends and family members very satisfied.
