The Azai-San Collection

"Stunningly beautiful, Hand Forged, Razor Edged Art"

Azai Chef Knife Collection

CarbonCrNiMoVTungsten
1.115.2-.95.26---

Master Azai-San knives are light, precise, razor edged delights. The knives in this collection are truly works of art. There is a waiting list of up to 4 months to acquire one. I consider it a privilege to be able to offer you his work and hope that you will also share that sentiment as as owner of a hand crafted Azai. His blades have it all. Beauty and laser like performance in a light comfortable cutting instrument by a thin center hagane core of HRC 61 hardness surrounded by many layers of softer Stainless Damascus steel.

Azai's knives are both a joy to behold and to hold. Every cutting task becomes a pleasure as these keen edged blades float effortlessly through food. Each knife is uniquely individual and is engraved with the handsome kanji mark of the master. The striking elegance of the blade is matched with a gorgeous 6 sided Japanese handle of sandalwood and ebony, suitable for both left and right handed users. Azai-Sans knives are considered so exceptional I understand the Smithsonian and other prestigious museums have acquired them. Now you have the opportunity to add one or two to your collection. I believe you will be glad you did.

"Sadly my friend Master Azai passed away in July 2014. His work was truly beautiful. Life as a smith is a hard one hammering for hours and in often difficult conditions.It takes a physical toll. Azai san will be missed - his legendary blades will live on". CW
