Konosuke has createe a new and beautiful line MADEI series- the SUMIIRO. Konosuke ‘SUMIIRO’ has a core of SLD, hardened up to 65 HRC, and is clad in Stainless steel. The toughness of Mr. Nihei’s forging, combined with this cladding results in an excellent ‘all-rounder’ of a blade while the lack of reactivity can give you peace-of-mind that you don’t need to be wiping down the blade constantly.
The finish is stunning with a beautiful Kurouchi Nashiji finish. This handsome finish looks great without much of the maintenance a soft-iron-cladding finish can demand.
‘SUMIIRO’ means “the color of India ink”, as is seen in Japanese hand-painted calligraphy.
