G3 SUPER STEEL
G3 Super Steel has hardness like carbon steels which gives it exceptional edge sharpness and retention. Combining blade performance similar to the white and blue steels with easy maintenance. Few forging artisans are willing to work with G3 because it demands a very high level of skill and experience to forge well. Kikusumi SILVER GHOST blades are forged by a 1st rank master craftsman in Sakai holding the prestigious « dentou kougei shi » award from the Japanese Ministry of Trade and Industry. SILVER GHOST hand forged knives are assembled and given a subtle polish finish before the Kikusumi logo is carefully punched in to one side of the blade.
SILVER GHOST handles are crafted one at a time by hand from ebony wood with a finish and smoothness that looks gorgeous and feels even better. Ebony is the most difficulty wood to craft and is prized for both its density and longevity. Each handle is fitted with a uniquely beautiful black buffalo horn collar that bridges the space between handle and blade. Extra care is taken in the crafting of the knife so that a seamless joint between the handle and ferrule feels smooth to the touch. Handle narrows slightly towards the blade to improve grip and overall performance. The natural lines create a wonderfully ergonomic fit that is ideal for a kitchen knife handle. For Japanese knives the octagonal or “hachikaku” handle is the first choice for the best knives. Grip, feel and durability are key considerations during design with skilled craftsmen who make Kikusumi knives.
The origin of the KIkusumi SILVER GHOST is rooted in the cultural history of Sakai which stretches back over 600 years. Honyaki knives are « true-forged » meaning that they are constructed entirely out of one material. In this case a new Japanese super steel we call G3 that delivers high carbon steel performance with stain and rust resistance for easier maintenance.
