In many ways, the steel of a knife defines its quality. Ultimately, a knife is there for cutting materials, and the blade is everything in determining the capabilities of a knife. Japanese steel is legendary for its strength, durability, and sharpness – today as it was centuries ago in the age of the samurai. High chromium Aus 8 Japanese-made steel is hard, resistant to rust and can achieve an extremely sharp edge. This exceptional steel stands shoulders above other high-grade steels with its unique balance of qualities. When you purchase an Aus 8 Japanese steel knife, you will know the feel of quality by the look and feel of the metal.
How It’s Made
Forgers create Aus 8 Japanese steel using cryogenic treatment, cooling the steel to -321 degrees using liquid nitrogen. These same methods are standard in U.S. Military grade knife production. Knives can reach high temperatures during the forging process to treat and harden the metal to the correct level. This gives the steel toughness, hard-wearing qualities, hardness, and resistance to corrosion as well as excellent edge retention. The blade of an Aus 8 Japanese steel knife possesses a strict balance of material composition to ensure that the blade is fit for all scenarios.
