Miyazaki Aogami Super Damascus sujihiki 270mm is the Japanese equivalent of a filleter or slicing knife.

History and curiosity

Haruki Miyazaki-san is a 35-year-old blacksmith from the Goto Islands in Nagasaki Prefecture. He decided to become a blacksmith and apprentice under Ooba-san in Fukuoka.

After 5 years of apprenticeship, he learned all the basic blacksmithing skills and returned to his native island, where he opened his own workshop. He continued to travel throughout Japan, learning and mastering new skills from other blacksmiths and knifemakers on his travels.

Miyazaki works alone in his small forge, doing everything by hand. All his knives are hand laminated , heat treated with pine charcoal and water tempered.

The blade

Made with san mai structure, with super aogami steel core and soft iron coating. The iron clad is hand laminated, to obtain a pretty damascus pattern. Due to its water tempering, aogami super steel has a hardness of 64-65 HRC, which allows this blade to be razor sharp, having the ability to hold the edge for a very long time.

The handle

Finally, the handle is made of dyed and stabilized mango wood with mother-of-pearl inlays, spacers, ferrule and bottom cap in black ash burl.
