Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan ZDP-189 Wa Series
Since we started our business, we have often received inquiries and requests
from our customers for special steel knives such as ZDP-189, Cowry X.
Hitachi ZDP-189 Powdered High
Speed Tool steel (Carbon 3%, Chromium 20%) is attractive, and very special, but still mysterious
and rare on the market.
When we saw the ZDP-189 steel knives for the first time, our first impression
was they could rival or equal in excellence the Cowry X steel which Master
Hattori uses for the KD Series Cowry X Damascus knives.
We now have the chance to work with Sukenari forge-smiths to produce these ZDP-189 Forged Wa Gyuto knives and we are very glad to be able to introduce them to you.
Sukenari is great forge-smiths who proactively take on new steels. We understand and respect their knife making policy as they are making every effort to satisfy professional users’ needs and demands.
These ZDP-189 kitchen knives were made through a difficult and time-taking
forging process and hand sharpening process. They are the result of many years of ZDP-189 knife production technology and of the rich experience Sukenari has devoted.
Even if you are already satisfied with Japanese kitchen knives, you will
still feel the colossal difference in sharpness that these knives bring.
