Description

With Shun Nagare, kai has created another innovative masterpiece of Japanese blacksmithing. The sophisticated design, the special properties of the materials used and a technically complex production process mean that this series of knives belongs to the absolute luxury class. On the highly polished blades, an ornately decorated, radial pattern of Damascus layers is visible. This effect, combined with the mottled grey-black handle, gives the knife an impressive overall appearance. The blades of the series consist of two different types of steel, which are bonded to a 72-layered piece of Damascus steel. The complex layering of the two types of steel results in a blade with exceptionally sustainable cutting power.more

Kitchen knives

Kitchen knives are used for various purposes and come in countless shapes, sizes and colours. The most important purchase in terms of knives is the all-purpose knife – it tackles most jobs in the kitchen. Choose between a classic European model featuring a relatively long blade and a well-balanced handle or go for an Asian Santoku knife that’s great for getting to work on vegetables, meat and fish. Smaller tasks, like cleaning, peeling and cutting fruit and veg, are best tackled with a pairing knife. Alternatively, there are also special types of knives for bread, cheese, butter, herbs or ham as well as for filleting or for carving. Knife sets are not only a great way of saving money but they also guarantee perfectly matched knives for the respective tasks. The three most important materials kitchen knives are made of are Damascus steel, ceramic or stainless steel. Knives made from Damascus steel originate in traditional sword forging. Because of their multiple layers, Damascus steel knives are also appealing to the eye. They are corrosion resistant, extremely hard and durably sharp. Ceramic knives are characterised by exceptional hardness and sharpness. They do not transfer odour, do not rust and lie comfortably in the hand. Their blades are flexible, thereby reducing risk of breakage. Stainless steel knives with plastic handles, on the other hand, are great value for money. Their robust materials are dishwasher-safe yet durable. So knives not only vary in terms of the materials they are made of but also feature blades that are fundamentally different. They can be smooth or serrated or may feature indentations on both sides to prevent whatever they are cutting from sticking.

Wood

Wood is generally used to describe the solid or hard tissue of the stems (trunk, branches and twigs) of trees and shrubs. Botanically, wood is defined as the secondary xylem of seed plants produced by cambium. According to this definition, however, the woody tissues of palm trees and other higher plants are not wood in the narrower sense. However, the storage of lignin in the cell wall is also characteristic here. In a broader definition, wood is therefore also understood as lignified plant tissue. From a cultural-historical point of view, woody plants are probably among the oldest used plants. As a versatile, but especially renewable raw material, wood remains one of the most important plant products to this day.

Damasteel

Damascus steel was a term used by several Western cultures from the Medieval period onward to describe a type of steel used in swordmaking from about 300 BC to 1700 AD. These swords are characterized by distinctive patterns of banding and mottling reminiscent of flowing water. Such blades were reputed to be not only tough and resistant to shattering, but capable of being honed to a sharp and resilient edge.
