The Damascus Series is a Japanese Masterpiece. This series combines old forge traditions with state of the art and futuristic technology. The maximum sharpness, hardness and durability of the edges are achieved using the renowned wear resistance V10 premium steel alloy. The Damascus steel is then carefully layered on top to produce the beautiful Damascus patterning. A unique "flat screw" system with integrated ball bearing ensures a silky smooth operation. The convex and hollow ground blades are finely mirror polished. The KASHO Damascus series represents the ultimate in hand finished sophistication. Two models are offered in offset.
