Kai quality steel
The KAI knives are made of 32 layered damask with a core of VG-10 steel. This is an extremely rust-resistant cobalt alloy with a hardness of 61-62 HRC. Every blade of a KAI knife is specially coated, which creates the fabulous lines that are so typical for damask steel. Every KAI knife is hand sharpened before it arrives in your kitchen.The handles are made from laminated black Pakka wood, and have that typical Japanese 'chestnut shape', that makes these knives perfectly ergonomic.
