Master Blacksmith Katsuyasu Kamo is well known in Japan for his work in the cutting and gardening tool arenas. He has been forging blades for over 50 years and is one of the founders of the famous Takefu Village Co-operative Knife Factory. As a maker of blades required to tackle tough workloads he is an expert at forging and constructing sturdy and resilient cutting utensils. We are extremely happy to be the only company outside of Japan selling these unusual and attractive kitchen knives.

Kamo-san uses VG10 as his core steel. This is undoubtedly one of the most popular stainless steels in the world for making knives. It earns its high ranking for sharpness, edge retention, and durability. The alloy is hardened to about 61 HRC. He encases the inner core of VG10 with a multi-layer damascus stainless steel construct. Using only a few layers produces a really attractive pattern that is both subtle and very unusual.

To add to the unique look of these knives he utilizes a solid stainless bolster which gives the knife a very sleek look and makes for a sanitary and easy to maintain junction between blade and handle. The bolster then attaches to the really lovely handle which is fashioned from a multi-ply oak wood. This construction reduces the chances of shrinkage and distortion.

The end result is a package that is elegant looking while being easy to maintain and use. We really like these new offerings from the forge of Katsuyasu Kamo and we think you will too.
