Eden Kanso Aogami features
Eden Kanso Aogami steel
These knives are made from Blue Paper Steel, which is a type of steel with a hardness of approx. 62-63 HRC. As a result, these knives can be enhanced with an extremely thin grind. The unique Blue Paper Steel of the Kanso Aogami has great properties for a fantastic cutting experience. This type of steel is incredibly strong and can be sharpened to extreme levels of sharpness. Blue Paper Steel contains a little more chromium and tungsten than similar steel types. As a result, this type of steel is more corrosion resistant and less prone to chipping. Of course, this steel can still use some maintenance every once in a while. Though it is more corrosion resistant than comparable steels, it's still not entirely stainless. To prevent rust from forming, it's important to dry the knives after use. Over time, a natural layer of oxidation (called a patina), will develop, providing protection against rust.
Eden Kanso Aogami handle for right-handed users
The classic Japanese red sandal wood handle is asymmetrical, making it feel great in hand. Eden Kanso Aogami knives are available in a left-handed version and a right-handed version.
Sharpening the Eden Kanso Aogami kitchen knives
It is good to be aware that these knives should not be sharpened with a pull-through sharpener. Because of the rock-solid steel and the sideways movements that occur in a pull-through sharpener, pieces of the edge could break off. We therefore advise you to carefully sharpen by hand on a sharpening stone, sharpening steel or with a sharpening system.
We offer a 25-year warranty on material and manufacturing defects. Please note that rust spots on these knives are not a material defect, and that these knives are not dishwasher safe.
