KISUKE's ATS-34 Santoku Knives solve the following problems.
(1) Overwhelming sharpness
KISUKE's ATS-34 Santoku Knives have hardness around HRC 64. This is a hardness comparable to optimally heat treated blue paper steel.
(2) Overwhelming sharpness retention period
ATS-34, which is the most suitable knife steel, has excellent wear resistance. Therefore, it is also a big feature that the durability of sharpness is good.
(3) Special sharpening
The blade is completed just by sharpen with a whetstone for a little while. This is amazing. The task is completed in a much shorter time than the ideal heat treated white paper steel knives. This is a completely different feature from the famous knife steel material ZDP 189.
(4) It is hard to rust due to stainless steel
The blade is ATS-34, and the body is SUS stainless steel. It is characterized by being hard to rust because it is all made of stainless steel.
(5) Less usage restrictions
Generally, Japanese kitchen knives get hardness by specializing in cutting conditions and become brittle instead. However, KISUKE's ATS-34 series reversed this common sense. If it is a half frozen food, it can be cut easily and safely.
(6) Rosewood handle and wine red ferrule.
Rosewood has a high density, and it has resistant to rot when touched with water. In addition, the ferrule of the wine red color that has a major impact on the visual appearance of this product is a major feature.
(7) KISUKE made a Santoku under this condition
The shape of this product is Japanese traditional Santoku knife. And it has a Japanese style handle, it is classified as a Japanese Santoku. The edge shape on the tip is manufactured so that it will cut when pulled.
What brings these solutions is KISUKE's heat treatment work and forging work.
Normally, a kitchen knife using ATS-34 consists only of it. As many of the people viewing this page may know, except for Honyaki knife, blades made of single steel can not be hardened. Hardening makes it brittle and causes cracking. However, KISUKE's ATS-34 Santoku Knives are able to take out the hardness of the core steel because of the way of making them "Warikomi" by winding the blade ATS-34 with SUS-based stainless steel. The practical hardness of ATS-34 is about HRC 59-61 even with the manufacturer HITACHI, but KISUKE produces numbers around HRC 64 with human work alone. ※ Almost all similar products are clad stamped and rolled at the factory. Most of these HRCs are 59-61. KISUKE forged by his hand.
In addition, winding stainless steel with stainless steel can not be realized by almost all blacksmiths. The reason is the passivation film produced on the surface of stainless steel. Stainless steel is hard to rust because of this passive film, but at the same time, it is extremely difficult to forge multiple stainless steels into one object. However, KISUKE created stainless steel and stainless steel forging work.
Almost all similar products are knives that use rolled and stamped clad material at the factory. Most of these hardnesses are 59 to 61 HRC.

For the moment, I have never seen a product that produces an HRC 64 with the ATS-34. And It has be forged stainless steel and stainless steel with human hands.
