The Nordic Kitchen Damascus Knife was developed and designed according to Japanese knife-making traditions. The blade is made of Japanese Damascus steel (AUS 10) comprised of 67 layers with a 13-15° angle on each side. These features ensure maximum sharpness without compromising on flexibility. The narrow spine makes it easy to cut through foods, although it should not be used on frozen foods or bones. The handle is shaped according to the hand’s anatomy, and the bolster is designed so that you can rest your thumb on it, allowing you to apply optimum pressure and for greater precision.
