Collection: Ginsan Series

Today's modern chefs demands a sharp edge that can withstand daily use. It must be also easy to re-sharpen. Ginsan (Silver 3) stainless steel is a perfect blend of durability, sharpness, and limited maintenance. These are very durable traditional knives without the exacting care needed for carbon steel. Each one of our Ginsan knives is hand forged and hand assembled by traditional craftsmen. Our Ginsan blades are hand forged from two layers with the harder Ginsan making up the edge and a softer stainless for the tang. This makes the knife easier to sharpen and care for.

Blade - 2 layers, hand forged
Edge - Ginsan steel (silver 3). Ginsan steel is a perfect blend of carbon, chromium, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur and silicon.
Spine - 405 stainless steel
HRC - 60-62
Bevel - Single Bevel
Handle - Traditional Ho-wood ā€œDā€ shaped wa handle with water buffalo ferrule. Also available with Ebony handle.

Please contact us for left-handed pricing and availability.

CAUTION - Always hand wash and dry knives. Use caution when cutting anything that may contain bones, pits, seeds, hard pieces, or was previously frozen
