Cuisine::pro® Damashiro® Emperor knives have been crafted from the finest Japanese Steel 420J2, and ice-hardened to ensure superior blade strength and durability. The Japanese steel blade construction has been inspired by century old manufacturing techniques to create a super sharp cutting edge which holds a greater edge retention. This technique is favoured by traditional Japanese craftsman and Samurai sword makers. The blades are characteristic of banding and mottling reminiscent of flowing water.
