The steel used in these knives is one of the best carbon steels on the market. Aogami Super is known for its ability to take and keep a super sharp edge. It is also very reactive, which is why the kurouchi finish on these knives is so great. It helps with rust protection and aids in food release. You'll still need to be careful to keep these knives dry.

We've upgraded this handle to a nice walnut and maple wood octagonal. It makes this knife an enticing value.

If you have not tried an AS knife this could be your time to experience this super steel at a truly affordable price.

    So this was my first AS blade I have had the privilege to use. Absolutely amazing. Edge retention is phenomenal , I have to put it up there with my favorite steels. Just a great all purpose knife I added to my arsenal. Thanks CKTG for providing excellent customer service, quick ship times, and amazing products. This wasn't my first purchase from CKTG but I can assure you that they have a customer for life!

      excellent knife, July 19, 2016

    I can not express how much I love using this knife. I have only had it for two weeks now but with 6+ hours a day prepping a variety of veggies and meats it flies. I have it a 5 star rating the only complaint (very small) is a tiny fragment of the tip broke off only after the first use, it has been fine since it was just a bummer having a noticeable flaw only after the first hour, The tip came a little bent. but ootb sharpness blew all of my other knives away. The shape is perfect and super light, you can chop so fast you almost look flamboyant.
