History and curiosity
Tsunehisa is a brand, like many others in Japan, which takes care of marketing the proven creations of several blacksmiths, based in different cities, such as Sakai, Tosa or Seki for example.
Each city has its own style in the creation of kitchen knives, and also specializes in the use of certain steels, more than others.
For example, Tosa craftsmen are recognized for having an excellent mastery in the forging of Ginsan and AUS10 steels. At Seki are highly recognized for the incredible work done on VG10 steel blades. And Sakai for specializing in single bevel blade forging.
The core is made of Aogami Super steel, the most efficient of Aogami steels. With a hardness that varies between 63-65 HRC, it offers us an extremely sharp cutting edge and remarkable edge retention. For a unique cutting experience.
