Each blade is hand forged in SG2 steel, which allows for a high-level edge retention, super thin and light weight blade. The SG2 steel core in this series of knives is hardened to HRC 62+ and is clad in a softer stainless steel. The knives are highly polished and the fit and finish is sensational.
The side of the blade is decorated in a stylish and practical hammered pattern, which is unique to the Shizuku series of knives. The hammered finish, not only looks great, but helps with food release. Although the hammered pattern might appear rough it is highly polished and smooth. Completing the design is Kurosaki Sans signature chiseled kanji.
