Katai Forged


Wave-like shapes were used as a source of inspiration for the design. This is reflected in the shape of the blade and how this transitions into the handle. The blade is completely forged by hand in 5 layers of Japanese VG10 steel. The hammer stroke on the blade is essentially the same as the other series. However, it has undergone additional post-processing with the help of a very fine hammer. This way of processing is a lot more intensive, but it results in a refined look with a completely unique appearance. In turn, the handle is made of root wood. The wood is first filled with resin, then pressed and subsequently modeled. Because of this process, each knife is unique in finish, size, color and wood structure.
