Shun Engetsu Knives
The Engetsu or "Full Moon" range has Damascus layers in a stunning pattern that are a statement on the highly polished blade. Beyond the obviously stunning aesthetic, these knives are state of the art. The hand crafted dual core construction has 71 micro layers of VG10 and VG2 stainless steel. The design and durability of the heel and tip are different to the mid section of the blade, giving the user different zones of performance where required.
The ergonomically shaped handle lies comfortable in the hand thanks to a light, rounded line. The sub-hilt, bolster and endcap in the handle give the knife a solid feeling of stability and function as a counterbalance to the blade for optimal control. The knife looks warm and lavish, partly due to the handles of blue/black Pakkawood, a highly resistant wood veneer.
