The Orient Fusion Series knives are hand crafted from premium Japanese Aichi AUS8 steel for exceptional cutting performance, edge retention and stain resistance. The knives then fuse best-practice ergonomic design featuring the Orient Ergo-Grip™ handle, a diagonal bolster and a unique central balance zone for dynamic weight distribution.
The professional grade AUS8 Japanese steel is already well known for its durability and supreme sharpness. The Fusion series goes on to include an exquisite hand-made hammer finish in the surface of the blade. The anti-drag air pockets that form as part of the pattern break the vacuum effect that can cause dense foods to stick to the blade thereby improving cutting performance in fast use.
Fusion Series knives are sharpened to form an optimum 13-15 degree V-Ground edge. The razor like performance will endure through demanding use allowing this premium tool to stay sharper for longer.
