The Hatsukokoro SG2 damascus line cuts well, looks beautiful but does not carry a hefty price tag.

The SuperGold 2 (SG2) steel is a state-of-the-art powdered cutlery steel by Takefu Special Steel. It is a premium steel with extremely fine microscopic structure therefore it can be very sharp compared to traditional steel. Also, thanks to the modern metallurgy technology, powdered steels tend to have superior edge retention and impact resistance. In the case of SG2, it is typically heat treated to HRC 62, and has more than twice the edge retention than traditional White 2 steel. Being a stainless steel, together with extreme sharpness, high edge retention and impact resistance, the SG2 is a perfect cutlery steel.

The Hatsukokoro’s design is dynamic and vibrant. Through its highly polished surface, It is almost impossible to really tell the “layersâ€?through the strikingly beautiful yet convoluted pattern. Matched with the K&S teak octagonal WA handle, with black buffalo horn, the overall package is traditional, simple yet elegant.
