Seki Kanetsugu was founded in 1918 by Matsujiro Kawamura, the first president who is the descendant of the Japanese sword maker “Kanetsugu”.
“Zuiun” was developed and became the 100th anniversary model using the traditional technique of the swordsmith and high technology.
ZUIUN Kirituke Special is a hybrid kitchen knife that combines the functions of thin blade knives and knot blade knives.
By making the blade double-edged rather than single-edged, the blade goes straight into the food. It is a multi purpose knife suitable for use with meat, fish, vegetables and other ingredients.
SPG2 “Damascus steel”, is used for the blade material, with the beautiful patterns standing out. The core material, SPG2 (also known as powder stainless high-speed steel) that excels in the four major conditions for a blade: “high level of hardness, high level of toughness, abrasion resistance and corrosion resistance”.
