Introducing a new line here at KNIFE.
Hayabusa HAP-40 from Hatsukokoro in Seki City.
These knives are made with the incredible HAP-40 semi stainless steel, one of the hardest steels used in knife making. With a carbon content of 1.3%, HAP-40 boasts an HRC of 66, making it one of the hardest steels in our shop and a favourite among cooks and blacksmiths alike.
The Hayabusa line is made using a combination of techniques. The blades are forged using a method called roll forging and are then sharpened and finished by hand.
Please note, while these knives have a stainless cladding, HAP-40 is a semi stainless steel and should be kept clean and dry to prevent rusting.
