We are thrilled to add these stunningly beautiful knives to our store. The attributes that people associate with the Konosuke brand are fully on show with these gorgeous knives!
SKD11 and D2 are different names for the same powdered steel. This steel has a fine structure and good distribution of the elements, which in turn make it possible to add more alloy elements than in other stainless steels. The result is an increase in hardness and a more impressive cutting characteristic. SKD steel is slightly harder than SG2 steel but because of the lower chrome content it is less rust resistant too. Combine this great alloy with an outer stainless jigane that has been treated to a wonderful tsuchime kurouchi finish and you have a knife that will last for generations and looks as good as it did out of the box!
We cannot over-emphasize the outstanding levels of fit and finish that are displayed here. The grinds and profile are perfect. The finish of the spine, choil, and neck are about as good as they come. The Khii Ebony handle is a wonder to look at and hold.
