Kasumi Damascus knives feature an elegant “Kasumi-patterned” Damascus knife consisting of 32-layer stainless steel. A super hard alloy VG-10 is used as a core material of the blade. This knife series features the “KASUMI (haze) pattern,” that emerges in forging a blade consisting of 32 layers of stainless steels holding the core material. Carefully finished by professionals, the sharp cut of this KASUMI knife lasts longer than any other knife, even allowing for constant use. In 2002, the KASUMI Series won the DESIGN PLUS Award at the Ambiente Messe in Germany.
