Seki Magoroku Redwood is a series of chef’s knives with a robust stainless steel quality and typically Japanese features. With its highly polished blades, the series includes both singleedged and double-edged blades that share the common denominators of stable and wellbalanced functionality as well as sharpness. The design combines a minimalist shape with traditional Japanese aesthetics. The name stems from the redwood timber used to make the inserted handle. This hardwood has a naturally high oil content and is particularly moisture resistant.
Bread knives do not require any sharpening usually. Should one wish to sharpen a bread knife, this would require the use of a ceramic rod known as a “crock-stick” which enables the sharpening of the serrated grooves segments on the knife’s blade.
