Seki Kanetsugu ZUIUN SPG2 Mirrored Finish Damascus Kiritsuke Gyuto - 210mm - Pakka Wood with White Ring (Heptagonal) Handle
*NEW FOR 2023*
This knife really is something special. Created to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Seki Kanetsugu, the “Zuiun” series knives are made with R2/SG2 high-speed powder core steel, heat-treated and cold-treated to 62-63 HRC, enabling superb edge retention. This is the highest level of fit and finishes by Kanetsugu, with a beautiful Damascus cladding that is almost mirror-like. With a beautiful tapering, the knife has an excellent edge geometry.
Supported by the harder SG2 steel, the knife maker was able to achieve excellent thinness behind the edge, facilitating great cutting performance. This knife features a special Shichikaku (Heptagon) handle made of brown pakkawood, with a beautiful mosaic pin for decoration. All knives in this series come in a lovely Paulownia wood box.
