Full description

A pair of simply beautiful knives made by Shigeki Tanaka. This Petty 120mm and Santoku 165mm are made with an Aogami 2 carbon steel core and stainless outer layers. The handles are made from black Pakkawood. Price includes 10% discount. PLEASE NOTE Carbon steel is the material that all knives were originally made from. The reason that it was used is that it is easy to sharpen and achieves a very sharp edge. In recent years knives have mainly been made out of a single piece of stainless steel. This method of production is not the best way to make a knife but manufacturers favour this material as it is a simple construction and makes a shiny knife. Carbon steel knives will oxidise and discolour. This is not a fault, it is a nature of the material. Carbon steel knives can be sharpened to a razor edge. They must be dried after use and periodically they will need cleaning with lemon juice and a light scouring pad. Traditionally they are treated after use with camellia oil which inhibits the oxidation process. If the fact that carbon steel requires a little bit more maintenance is of concern then a laminated or folded steel knife should be considered.
