Pro Flash Series
The Tojiro Professional Flash Series features a blade folded and forged construction of 63 layers of Damascus steel.
Due to the thin layer of VG-10 steel in its centre it allows the blade to be extremely hard and sharp while retaining its flexibility and strength.
Over a thousand years ago Japanese sword smiths crafted swords for the Samurai which needed to be extremely strong, durable and sharp. These same traditional sword wielding techniques have been adopted in the Tojiro Professional Flash Series.
With a Rockwell rating of 61, these Damascus knives embody incredibly sharp edges which can only be found in the best of blades.
The beautifully crafted Micarta handles are embedded with stainless steel and are made from linen and synthetic resin compounded by extreme amounts of pressure and heat creating a wood-like grain and feel giving it the highest level of durability.
