Ever since we first started to offer Kanetsugu knives to our customers, back in 2006, we have received many positive comments about Kanetsugu’s knives. Our customers especially praise the sharpness, cutting performance and high standard of manufacturing. The secret behind these words of praise is, of course, Kanetsugu’s original convex edge geometry.
Mr. Kawamura always makes an extra effort to explore new paths that might enable him to improve knife quality, or to better satisfy the needs and wishes of his worldwide customers.
We are excited to reveal the Kanetsugu’s new line of knives, which are the product of their vision and passion.
The Classic Hammered Finish San-Mai (Three layer) Blade is made with a High Carbon Stainless Steel (Molybdenum Vanadium Stainless Steel) core that is sandwiched between soft, corrosion-resistant Stainless Steel.
The Heptagonal (Seven-sided) Brown Pakka Wood Handle has a Black Pakka Wood Ferrule and excellent fit and finish. The stylish shape of the Wa (Japanese-style) handle perfectly matches the Classic Hammered Finish San-Mai blade. Kanetsugu uses their own modern manufacturing technologies to create these very practical, high-quality handles, which are water-resistant, crack-resistant and easy to clean.
We believe Kanetsugu have captured the latest knife trends and met their worldwide customer’s needs and preferences by creating these new finely made Wa-style "Kanetsugu Classic Hammered Wa Series" knives.
