Introducing Konosuke's latest line, SUMIIRO, a stunning and innovative creation. The blade's core is made of SLD, hardened up to 65 HRC, and coated with stainless steel. The blade's resilience, coupled with Mr. Nihei's forging skills and the cladding, results in a versatile and well-rounded blade. Additionally, the blade's non-reactive nature eliminates the need for constant wiping, providing you with peace of mind.
The Kurouchi Nashiji finish is a visual delight, adding to the blade's overall appeal. With its attractive appearance, it requires less maintenance than blades with a soft-iron-cladding finish. SUMIIRO's name derives from "the color of India ink," as evident in Japanese hand-painted calligraphy.
