Why Aogami Super Knives?
With their very rich chemical composition, Aogami Super knives can achieve a high Rockwell hardness and provide superb cutting performance and edge retention. Our contacts in the knife industry often tell us that it is difficult to maximize the characteristics of this steel, but we are confident that our Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan Aogami Super knives can satisfy your needs and expectations because each product has great characteristics and demonstrates the rigorous production policies of our forge smiths.
Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan Aogami Super Custom Damascus Knives have a beautiful vortex Damascus pattern and the blade is ground very thin behind the edge. This is the result of skilful forging, grinding and sharpening, and the forge-smith’s passion for creating beautiful and practical Aogami Super knives.
Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan Aogami Super Kurouchi Knives have a unique and powerful Kurouchi ("Black Forged") blade. The Aogami Super steel blade core is sandwiched with soft stainless steel, which not only enable easy sharpening and maintenance, but also improves blade toughness.
Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan Aogami Super “Sea Clouds” Knives have a simple yet elegant appearance and, in the area where the blade core and vivid cladding layer line meet, there appear to be beautiful clouds (Created by a special media blasting process). Master Yamamoto decided to name this finishing style
雲海, or "Sea Clouds". We think this great name really captures the essence of these new Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan Aogami Super knives.
We are proud to introduce the Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan Unique Traditional Forged Knives. Now you can enjoy the art of traditional hammer forged knives and the outstanding cutting performance of Aogami Super knives at same time!
