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 black pakka 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.
