The Elegancia series of chef 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 this series is the potent high carbon powder stainless steel SG2, an exotic modern alloy with all the benefits of high-carbon steel, without the maintenance. SG2 is quite easy to sharpen, and will hold a screaming edge much longer than it’s stainless counterparts like VG10.
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 Pakka Wood handle with brass bolster.
These knives are incredibly sharp, and as such have a very thin edge. 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. Do not twist or torque the blade whilst cutting, as this may also chip the cutting edge.
Use a cloth with hot water to wipe the blade, no scourers or abrasives as this may ruin the finish. 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!
We recommend you use a whetstone to sharpen this blade. Sharpening stones are available on our website, and with a small amount of practice you’ll be sharpening your own knives in no time.
