Typical of the Fujitora factory, each blade is made with 63 layers of Damascus steel wrapped around a VG-10 core. The knives are finished off with a Micarta Handle with brass plating. The knives are razor sharp and due to the difficulty in manufacturing and producing these knives we only carry a very small range. Purchasing a knife like this, is like purchasing a work of art though. We are not sure whether to use these or keep them in a glass cabinet!
