Tsunehisa knives are made incredibly well and very affordable. The 45 layer Damascus line brings beauty with affordability. They are great performers.
ZA-18 was developed by Osaka Clad Co., Ltd with Aichi Steel Corp to outperform VG10. It has similar chemical composition to the VG10, but contains higher Carbon, Chromium, Molybdenum, and Cobalt for added hardness, durability and corrosion resistance.
The Damascus pattern on this knife is just breath taking. It looks very smiliar to whats called raindrop Damascus.
