The Tradition of making Damascus pattern knives began in the Seki region of Japan in the 13th century.21 Generations later, the Sumikama Family are still producing damascus pattern knives to the exacting standards expected by the Imperial warlords of yesteryear.Kasumi mives are forged from 33 layers of Stainless Steel. The middle layer, which acts as the cutting edge, is made from V-Gold No.10 Stainless Steel; a high quaility steel developed exclusively for knives.Each Kasumi knife black is a high carbon Stainless Steel with cobalt, maganese, molybdenum and vanadium for added durability and ease of sharpening.The addition of cobalt to this steel requires special tempering in order to maximise the full benefit of this steel. Sumikama's technique for this special tempering is a closely guarded secret.
