32 Layers of Damascus Steel

Kasumi Kuro combines the aesthetics of both the original Damascus series and the newer hammered series of knives. The properties of both ranges already being well known, razor sharp edges and design features evoking the natural beauty of the Japanese landscape.

High carbon molybdenum vanadium steel is used for the core material, with 32 layers of Damascus steel protecting the core metal which is hardened to 58 Rockwell.

Black Wooden Handle

An handle in the traditional Japanese style, is made out of an epoxy black coating over wood, giving it a soft feel. Octagonal in shape, the handle is comfortable and easy to grip. Kasumi Kuro knives are nonetheless surprisingly well priced.

Made in Japan

Japan has always revelled in its isolation, a mysterious land filled with mountains, dragons and the sea. The Kasumi has always understood to be a spring mist, a well known phenomenon in Japan, it will settle over the mountains and sheltered valleys of rural Japan. The ‘Kasumi’ describes the pattern on the blades.
