What is Kasumi Knives?
Kasumi knives are made from two materials by joining a piece of soft iron (Jigane) with a piece of high-carbon steel; the carbon steel forms the blade’s edge, and the soft iron forms the body and spine of the blade. Some people call Kasumi “awase” (which literally means ‘to combine).
✽ Each knife has different color of the bolster because it is from all natural.
