BLACKSMITH INTRO – The Elegancia line of SG2 knives are crafted by Japanese knife maker Suncraft, operating out of the well-known knife making city of Seki, in Gifu prefecture. The core steel of the Senzo Elegancia is the high-performance SG2, an exotic powder stainless steel with better performance than traditional carbon steels like Blue 2, but with all the stainless properties to avoid rust and extra maintenance.
This line has a fantastic level of finish and presents beautifully in the Suncraft packaging. These knives come whetstone sharpened from factory and are paired with a waterproof, durable contoured handle with brass bolster.
STEEL BREAKDOWN – Often not quite as high in carbon content, stainless steels have added chromium which acts as a protecting element to oxidizing agents such as acidic foods and water. Generally speaking, when a steel has 12% or above in Chromium content, it is regarded as a stainless steel.
The main stainless steels used by Japanese blacksmiths are VG-10 and AUS10, and Ginsan. For their versatile nature and minimal maintenance, stainless steels are very common across many knives manufactured throughout the world.
- Washing – Dry your knives as soon as possible after washing and do not leave them wet for extended periods of time. Store in a cool, dry place. No dishwasher use!.
- Cutting – Cut on wood chopping boards only, and do not hit/cut/chop frozen vegetables, bones, or hard objects, as the blade can chip or break.
- Sharpening – We recommend you use a whetstone to sharpen this blade. We have a full range of sharpening tools here.
