Collection: Akifusa Migaki - Aogami Super Steel Japanese Knives
The Akifusa Traditional Aogami Super Migaki collection of Japanese knives is made with the famous Aogami Super Steel core, stainless steel cladding and a Kebony Maple* wood handle. Aogami Super Steel is easy to sharpen while maintaining a high stability, as well as being a little resistant to corrosive elements (compare to other carbon steels). The Aogami Super Steel core** is known as “super blue steel” or “Super blue paper steel” and is a high-carbon steel known for its excellent edge retention, sharpness, and ability to take a very fine edge. **The core steel with these Japanese knives will darken over time (patina) with use and if you look closely at the pictures, you can see the wavy cladding lines near the edge - this is where the exposed core will patina, creating an amazing visual contrast.
