ENGETSU 71-Layer Damascus Steel Blade
The Dual-Core blade of the Shun Engetsu series is manufactured using an innovative forging process. Two types of steel with different properties are forged into a 71-layer Damask steel: a flexible and resistant VG2 steel with a particularly hard VG10 steel. As a result the blades cut symmetrically on both sides and offer excellent sharpness, which stays sharp for a long time.
The blade pattern realises different cutting feelings in the three zones of the blade: the heel, middle and tip. This gives the user different zones of performance where required. The deep and intense pattern in the middle of the blade brings additional food release and enables precise slicing. The tip and heel have superior toughness and durability.
ENGETSU Pakkawood Handle
The ergonomically shaped handle lies comfortable in the hand thanks to a light, rounded line. The forged pliers in the handle give the knife a solid feeling of stability and function as a counterbalance to the blade for optimal control. The knife looks warm and lavish, partly due to the riveted handles of blue/black Pakkawood, a highly resistant wood veneer.
The Engetsu knives are packaged in a luxurious wooden box complete with a certificate of authenticity.
