Seki Magoroku Redwood is a series of chef’s knives in robust stainless steel with typically Japanese features. The series, with its highly polished blades, includes both single-edged and double-edged blades, whose common denominator is stable and well-balanced functionality and sharpness. The design structure combines a minimalist shape with traditional Japanese aesthetics. The name comes from the redwood timber used to make the inserted handle. This hardwood has a naturally high oil content and is particularly moisture-resistant.
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 have a long-lasting edge retention and excellent sharpness. The single-sided grinding traditionally used for Japanese blade shapes minimises friction between blade and cut material, thus enabling particularly precise cuts, as required in the preparation of sushi, for instance.
The handle in the traditional chestnut shape is made of redwood. This finely textured softwood is light and particularly robust. The handle which tapers towards the blade fits comfortably into the hand. Blade and handle are integrated and firmly connected by means of a shiny black plastic ferrule.
