Tsunehisa AS Sakura Sujihiki 270mm featured here is made from AS, or Aogami Super. AS is one of our favorite steels for making knives, as it has the highest wear resistance and lowest toughness of the three Blue Paper steels. Edge holding is truly outstanding and it is also easy to sharpen.

AS contains the highest amount of carbon and chromium of the three alloys, which not only increases its hardness but also gives it a slight advantage over the others in terms of corrosion resistance. This is further enhanced with the addition of stainless steel cladding. The cladding is somewhat softer or more ductile, which protects the inner cutting core from shocks. This knife is given a tsuchime or hammered finish to enhance both its food release capabilities and fine aesthetics.

The sakura style handle is made from cherry wood and it complements the blade both in looks and balance.
