The Orient Damascus Series Knives are hand crafted from Japanese Aichi AUS-10 superior steel for exceptional edge retention and long lasting cutting performance. This exclusive kitchen tool is ergonomically designed featuring the Orient Ergo-Grip™ handle, a diagonal bolster and a unique central balance zone for dynamic weight distribution. The AUS-10 superior steel core is protected with 66 layers of high carbon SUS410 Japanese steel blending extreme hardness and resistance to corrosion. The blades are then hand polished to reveal the iconic Damascus pattern, authentically derived from the intricate layers in the steel. The beautiful Damascus detailing can be traced back centuries to traditional handmade Japanese Samurai swords.
The fully finished, ultra-strong military grade G10 fibreglass handle features a robust triple rivet bond construction and is completed with an intricate central mosaic rivet and counterbalanced end cap.
