Seki Magoroko Red Wood Yanagiba Red Wood (21 cm)
Seki Magoroku Redwood is a series of chef’s knives with a robust stainless steel quality and typically Japanese features. With its highly polished blades, the series includes both single-edged and double-edged blades that share the common denominators of stable and well-balanced functionality as well as sharpness. The design combines a minimalist shape with traditional Japanese aesthetics.
The name stems from the redwood timber used to make the inserted handle. This hardwood has a naturally high oil content and is particularly moisture resistant.
The Seki Magoroku Redwood Blade The blades of the Seki Magoroku Redwood Series are made of a carbon 1K6 stainless steel with a hardness of 58 (±1) HRC. Both the double-edged and the single-edged blade shapes boast long-lasting edge retention and excellent sharpness. The single-sided grinding traditionally used for Japanese blade shapes minimises friction between the blade and the cut material, thus enabling particularly precise cuts, as is required for the preparation of sushi, for instance.
The Seki Magoroku Redwood Handle The traditional chestnut shape handle is made of redwood. This finely textured softwood is light and particularly robust. The taper towards the blade makes the handle fit the hand particularly comfortably. The blade and the handle are sandwiched and firmly connected via a shiny black plastic ferrule.
