SEKI KANETSUGU

Assorted Blacksmiths
Seki, Japan

BLACKSMITH INTRO – Seki Kanetsugu was founded in 1918 by Matsujiro Kawamura, who’s bloodline traces back to a swordsmith by the name of Kanetsugu, making Katanas in 1345. He prides himself on producing the best knives possible to honour Kanetsugu’s name.

Using a combination of traditional blacksmithing techniques and modern technology, the knives of the Zuiun line perform superbly whilst paying homage to their roots. This Zuiun series is a celebration of the 100 year anniversary of Seki Kanetsugu, and offers a mirror finished blade with a high-performance SG2 core with a limited edition Heptagon handle. They present beautifully in the Palownia wooden display box.

STEEL BREAKDOWN – SG2 is our favourite steel for kitchen knives. It is a scarce exotic alloy made by Hitachi Metals Japan, with all the performance (and more) of a carbon steel, with the added benefits of stainless steel. These knives come in at 63HRC.
