Ryusen - Blazen Series
Takefu-City, Fukui Prefecture (Echizen district) is famous for the Echizen Uchihamono (Hammer forged knives) backed by the traditional Hizukuri forging technique with 700 years of history.
Ryusen has been producing high quality Professional Chef's knives for decades with the Echizen Uchihamono tradition and modern technology.
Now Ryusen has re-introduced the "Blazen" series of powdered high speed tool-steel blades at a hardness of HRC 61-63. The blade core is made of SG-2 Powdered High Speed Tool Steel, encased in SUS410L steel. The blade is now marked as Bu-Rei-Zen logo in Kanji, as opposed to the previous English language markings.
This is the top of the Ryusen range, for the professional chef who requires the finest in performance, or the home cook who demands the best.
Each knife comes with a protective black wooden sheath (Saya).
The Blazen series are rapidly attaining a legendary status in the culinary world.
They feel wonderful in the hand and are extremely sharp.
