All the Jikko Mahogany Tsuchime knives have an astonishing design, and they are available at very attractive prices taking into consideration their high quality. These knives are suitable for both professional and domestic use.

The most eye-catching feature of this knife is its forged blade, which was built from a single piece of massive steel shaped into the shape of a knife. This is why the blade is so solid and has a remarkable balance. In its core, it is made of VG10 steel, which is a high quality steel known for its great solidity. 

Furthermore, both the look and the quality of the blade are enhanced by the 33 layers of damask steel that surrounds the core. A knife with a damascus blade is always attractive, but the aesthetics is not the only advantage of having several layers of damascus steel. In fact, the overlapping layers of soft and hard steel provide the blade the perfect combination between rigidity and flexibility. 

Another original characteristic of the blade is its hammered finish. Indeed, the surface of the superior side of each blade is hammered with a press, which results in a "hollowed" surface that gives an original look to the blade. The hammered surface also helps to perform cleaner cuts as it reduces the amount of food getting sticked to the blade.

Just when you thought that the blade couldn't be any better, let us also tell you that the blade of this knife was sharpened by hand by a true Japanese artisan. The process starts with the use sharpening stones with coarse grain, and it finishes with the use of a stone with fine grit 3000. The careful transition from coarse to fine sharpening gives the edge a smooth, sharp finish.

Finally, because the blade is not the only important part of a knife, the handle is also a great combination between of great design and beautiful look. Itis made of mahogany wood, which is a lightweight, which allows you to have a comfortable grip ideal for daily use. It is also very solid thanks to its 3 steel rivets that hold the structure securely.
