Kasumi Damascus knives are designed and manufactured in Japan using a closely guarded technique. Using 33 layers of stainless steel, these bolster-less knives are created by forge welding two layers of repeatedly folded steel to a hardened inner cutting edge. Kasumi then finishes the blade with a resin impregnated wooden handle, riveted to the tang. As would be expected there is a comprehensive range of Japanese knives including a Santoku knife, a Nagiri knife and three Sashimi knives. Also available are other paring knives, utility knives, chefs knives, boning knives, a carving knife and a slicer knife. Due to their high quality and lasting durability, Kasumi Damascus Knives are used by professional chefs around the world, including celebrity chef James Martin.
