Ryusen gift set


Ryusen was first established in Echizen during the 50s, they quickly become known for their high quality professional knives. Unlike a lot of their rivals they tend to specialise in western handled knives. The Blazen range was one of the first sets of knives to use the SG2 powder steel to great acclaim. 

STEEL: SG2 or R2. These are modern powder steels and as the name suggested are formed from mixture of powdered elements heated and pressed together. This allows for very precise recipes to be followed. The steels themselves have the ability to be hardened to above 65 on the Rockwell scale giving them excellent edge retention. This does come at a slight cost in that them can be slightly difficult to sharpen.

FINISH: Polished or Migaki

HANDLE: Western Pakkawood

In the set:

 - Gyuto. Literally translates as "cow sword", this is Japan's answer to the western chef knife. 210mm lentgh.

Santoku. Named after the three best things to do with this knife - slicing, dicing and mincing. It is the classic veg prep knife with both good breadth and width.

Petty. One of the smallest knife in the collection and perfect for everyday slicing tasks.
