Until now, it was considered almost impossible to create layered Damascus from two premium-quality stainless steels. But what was impossible is now a reality.
The Shun Dual Core series features a Damascus blade made from two premium-quality, high-carbon stainless steels. Seventy-one alternating micro layers of high carbon, high chromium VG10 and SG2 stainless steels are roll-forged to produce a finer grain in the steel and to give it both strength and beauty. The laminated steel is then hot forged to create the herringbone pattern that allows the layers to alternate along the cutting edge.
During normal use, the two steels will wear at different rates creating micro serrations along the edge so that the Dual Coreâ€™s extremely sharp edge feels sharp longer.
Dual Core blades are thin, light, and strong.
Traditional Japanese octagon-shaped handles in ebony PakkaWood provide a comfortable and secure grip.
