During a trip to Japan a few years ago I met young up-and-coming knife maker, Kanjo Tsukahara. He had been working with his father, Tsukahara-san, for just five years but he asked if he could design some knives for our customers in the USA.
Fast forward a few years, and we are now able to present one of the results of this collaboration. The Kanjo black damascus is a unique knife to our site made with VG10 damascus and a unique finish that gives a dramatic look to the blade. The knife is fully stainless and has excellent heat treatment and a grind that makes quick work of cutting food.
Fit and finish on these knives are top shelf and the design aesthetic is excellent. The knife also comes with a new black handle that looks great on the dramatic blade.
