Kasumi knives maintain their sharp cutting edges longer than their counterparts because the blades are hardened to Rockwell C59. A damascus stainless steel pattern is clad on each side of the blade and the handle is made of laminated wood. The manufacturing process is meticulously completed by the hands of skilled craftsmen.
The Kasumi range includes shears and knives that can be used for boning, chopping vegetables, steak, and bread. Kasumi knives are guaranteed to live in the kitchens of chefs and home cooks for a lifetime.
