Masashi’s SLD Damascus knives are things of such incredible balance and beauty anyway, imagine what happens when he throws this unique heat treatment and back scale finish into the mix.

Damascus SLD steel blades, Magnolia handles, resin ferrules. SLD steel from Hitachi benefits from a high carbon content that holds its edge well, is tough, easy to sharpen and maintain, and with a 12% chromium content is very nearly stainless. It's laminated to an outer cladding of 15-layered Damascus stainless steel, creating a blade of breathtaking beauty. 

  • Hand forged SLD steel
  • 12% chromium content for rust-proofing
  • Magnolia handle
  • 15 layered Damascus jigane cladding
  • Double bevelled
  • Made in Japan

Niwaki Tip: take care with these - the damascus can stain a bit with things like chorizo.
