Features of Kai Shun Nagare

This series of kitchen knives is among the top in the kitchen knife field. These knives are really quite unique. The collection is comprised of a paring knife, utility knife, santoku, chef's knife, carving knife and a bread knife.

Kai Nagare blade

The blades of the Kai Shun Nagare knives stands out. The blades are made from flexible VG2-steel and hard VG10 steel, combined to form 72 layers of damascus steel. This is a type of dual-core blade, with a hardness of 61 HRC. These knives have a unique design and are innovatively forged. It is as if the rays of the rising sun are caught directly in the blade. The pattern extends all the way to the razor-sharp blade with a subtle micro-bevel.

Shun Nagare handle

The ergonomically-shaped handle has a Western design, with a slightly tapered line and a small 'belly'. This makes every knife comfortable to hold while cutting. The handle is made from black-grey pakka wood and secured with two rivets. The forged tang in the handle provides a nice balance with the blade. It completely fits the bill for these extremely fine kitchen knives.

German Design Award 2017 Special Mention

The Shun Nagare series was awarded the German Design 2017 Special Mention. Justified praise for this unique knife series.
