SHOKUNIN Chef's knife is made from D2 Tool & Die Alloy Steel. This masterpiece piece takes days to produce starting from blanking to hand forging and finishing to complete assembling. The handle is made with wood micarta and is highly polished to show beautiful wood grains. The knife is perfectly balanced very light weight to carry around. Can be used for any purpose in kitchen, cutting, slicing etc.
D2 Tool & Die Alloy Steel has outstanding properties of strength and hardness. I amplify its properties by oil quenching it at 2100 deg F to cool it down fast, and i do it twice to make sure its hard to its inner core to withstand any kind of work you may put it to use.
