Suminagashi Damascus clad R2 core, hardened to 64HRC. Yoshimi Kato has produced something very special with this range. Super thin for this type of forged construction, the blade is only 1.8mm thin above the heel and tapers down to a laser 1.2mm before hit the needle like tip.

The Suminagashi cladding is a stunning pattern reminiscent of a rough ocean swell ending is a shark tooth like, cladding line before the edge. At less than 2mm thin at the spine you can imagine how thin the edge on this laser razor is. We measured and its less than 0.2mm behind the edge.

The black etched Damascus looks awesome with the rosewood and red pakka wood handle. Overall an amazing piece of work from one of Echizen’s most famous master blacksmiths.
