featured here is made with a core of Aogami Super
high carbon steel which is then hammer forged to a cladding of stainless steel in the san-mai style of forge welding. The solid outer layer is given a hammer finish while the carbon forging scale has been kept on the blade for that very cool kurouchi look.
Because it has stainless cladding, maintenance is kept to a minimum. A beautiful maple octagonal handle completes this great-looking package.
