The beautiful ripple-looking pattern on the blades, called “Kasumi Nagashi”, is one of the Japanese treasures. 37 layers with high and low carbon stainless are made using techniques for Japanese sword by skilled craftsmen. Each blade has individual ripple patterns on it and there is nothing the same pattern as the others. By layering the materials, atoms of the core become closer, which leads to accurate keenness. Of course the sharpness and easiness of care are still compatible.
