Kono 67 Layers Collection

TSS (Takefu Special Steel) are the leading supplier of Damascus steel for the knife making industry. In 2012, they decided to ask one of the finest knife makers in Japan to create a series of knives using their finest steel to show what their steel was capable of. Here are the results, a range of knives using a 67 Layer finest Damascus. This is the best example of a VG10 Core blade and available in very limited quantities.

Finest Japanese knife making craftsmanship creates flowing and exquisite patterns known as “Damascus” by alternating 33 layers of soft low-carbon stainless steel and hard high-carbon stainless steel. Its soft and hard layer structure realises higher strength and rigidity than general 3-ply steels. This Damascus pattern is appeared by the random blow with craftsman handwork, so each one has a unique pattern. The blade uses VG10 steel for the core blade clad with multi-layer steel for rigidity and hardness. The handle is made of Walnut tree.

Clad metal for the highest quality

The material used for the blade is clad metal manufactured using world-leading techniques by local companies in Echizen, which has extensive experience in this field. Clad metal is produced by forging different layers of metal together, taking advantage of the strength of each piece as an integrated unit while ensuring any weaknesses are balanced out by each layer. The steel is composed of a perfect blend that produces a long-lasting, greatly long-sharpness, hard to bend or break, and rust resistant.

VG10, Finest stainless cutting steel

VG10 stainless cutting steel is made from strictly selected pure iron that is worked using an optimal blend to produce an extremely sharp high-quality cutting steel manufactured using the finest steel processing technology. It's high corrosion resistance means that it is rust resistant and its superior abrasion resistance ensures that it retains its sharp edge.
