Blade – Ginsan steel (also called silver 3) is a perfect blend of Carbon, Chromium, Manganese, Phosphorus, Sulfur and Silicon.  It has the performance benefit of a traditional carbon steel with razor sharp edge and the practical benefit of stain-resistant steel.

Our Ginsan blades are hand forged from two layers with the harder Ginsan making up the edge and a softer stainless for the tang. This makes the knife easier to sharpen and care for.

Each one of our Ginsan knives is hand forged and hand assembled by traditional craftsmen.  Left handed bevel is available on request, please contact us for pricing and availability.

Handle – Traditional Ho-wood “D” shaped wa handle with water buffalo ferrule. Also available with Ebony handle.

HRC     60-62
