Tamahagane Tsubame Knives are made with a 3 ply stainless steel constuction. The middle layer is VG-5 which forms the edge of the blade. This layer is exceptionally hard (61 HRC), it is as hard as VG-10 stainless steel but has superior edge retention.
The carving fork is a shared kitchen utensil in homes that enjoy the consumption of most meats. A perfect accompaniment with the carving knife when required to slice poultry, fish, beef, lamb and other food items.
