Product detail

The KASUMI brand can satisfy almost everyone. In its offer, you will find high-quality budget knives Tora intended mainly for those attending cooking schools, above-average middle class, as well as luxury Masterpiece, or narrow-profile hand-forged gems from master Anryu. Not long ago, the brand's sales began to be dominated by the Kasumi Kuro novelty. We must point out that it is not surprising at all. For a more than decent price, you got a 33-layer damascene blade with a high-quality core and top hammering. Add the half tang construction and the irresistible Wa-Bocho is born.

So why is the Evo1 version coming? The original one had a resin ferrule that separated the blade from the handle. If the handles were oval, there would be no problem. However, the manufacturer reached for the popular octagon. Since the resin ferrule cannot be grinded, it was very difficult to match the edges of the ferrule to those on the handle. This resulted in small line variances. This small defect was removed by using new handles. These are longer and allow the problematic ferrule to be omitted. The knife got a cleaner and more elegant design.

Let's summarize the material composition. The cutting core consists of AUS8 steel with a hardness of 58 HRC. It is lined on the sides with 16+16 layers, in which softer and harder anti-corrosion steel alternate. The upper part of the blade bears a hammered pattern. The blade is symmetrical in the shape of the letter "V". The one-piece octagonal handle is made of stabilized pakkawood and covered with epoxy coating.

If you are looking for a light Japanese knife with a strong visual side at a lucrative price, look no further.

About producer


The brand KASUMI belongs to Sumikama Cutlery Mfg. Pvt.Ltd. Its current owner represents the third generation of this knifemaking family. Mr. Katsumi Sumikava found a very appropriate name for his knives - KASUMI. Not only because it resembles his name, but mainly because their damascus blades resemble the outlines of mountains under a misty sky. In Japanese culture, you often come across names that are direct references to specific objects or phenomena. And this is one of the examples.

Sumikama Cutlery is located in the city of Seki in Gifu Prefecture. It is an important center of Japanese cutlery, a kind of analogue of Solingen in Germany or Sheffield in England. Admittedly, with a richer history. The first blacksmiths began to settle here at the end of the 13th century. The attraction was peat reserves, rich iron ore sand, fresh water and the proximity of important rivers. These ideal conditions caused more than 300 forges to operate in Seki between 1300 and 1500. The quality of Seki swords soon gained an unshakable position, and the best katanas of samurai warriors usually came from this area.

Today, the production of KASUMI brand kitchen knives is overseen by master Kanefusa Fujiwara himself, a member of the 25th generation of the clan, famous for the production of katana swords. You can find the proud name of the region on every KASUMI brand blade.
