Akifusa Sujihiki (Carving Knife) Super Blue Steel Core
Akifusa is obviously apart of the well known Akifusa range including Ohishi and Kitaoka.
Everything that has the Akifusa stamp seems to be of high quality and normally hard to get.
These knives are normally hard to get and very hot property with some waiting lists stretching out to years, or just closed to any new business.
The Super Blue Steel core and thin knife makes this an exceptional performing knife.
The stainless cladding making the knife more corrosion resistant.
The super blue core has an extremely high carbon content. This knife will form a patina along the core after use. This is a sign of quality.
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.
All knives by Akifusa are hand sharpened.
A beautiful Ebony handle and a Pakka wood ferrule bolster
Up until now no one has been able offer these knives in Australia.
I am proud to be able to offer these knives to Newcastle and Australians.
