SO Sashimi

Each knife in the SO series features a premium natural olive wood handle. Olive wood is very solid, brightly colored and clearly grained. The comfort of the handle enhances the user’s experience and makes the cooking process more enjoyable.

For the blade we use Electroslag remelted 7Cr17MoV forged steel. Electroslag remelting is a special heat treatment with rapid solidification which doubles the solidification speed of ingots, reducing the particle size and number of primary carbides, thereby improving the toughness of the material and enhancing the wear resistance. The hardness of our 7Cr17MoV steel is stable at 58±2 HRC, offering lasting sharpness and durability. The gradual thinning improves the knife’s center of gravity, the grip is comfortable, and it is very convenient to use. The concave blade grinding process, called “Urasuki” in Japanese helps reduce the contact surface between the food and the blade, prevents the food from sticking to the blade, and reduces food compression, preserving the very delicate features of raw fish. The blade surface is sandblasting and with a fine metal texture.
