The Korin Tsuchime Damascus Line is one of Korin’s line of Damascus knives. This line features a unique and beautiful “tsuchi-me” (hammered texture) on the blade, paired with an elegant burgundy red synthetic wood handle and a V-10 steel core, which makes it popular both for professionals and as gifts. Each hand finished hammered Damascus blade is specially customized by Korin to fit professional needs. Damascus blades hold a reputation for having a long-lasting edge retention and capable of being sharpened to a sharp, resilient edge. The symmetrical 50:50 double-edged blade is suitable for both right and left-handed individuals.
