Buying hand forged knives - is it worth it?
Forging a knife is not easy, and we often hear from our Japanese knife makers how many attempts it takes for a forging process to work. A variety of factors must be considered such as forging temperature of the steel, steel combinations with expansion behavior, forging duration and much more. All of these factors must be brought into harmony. Only in this way can a knife with exceptional properties be created. Besides the outstanding performance of Japanese hand-forged blades, the design and craftsmanship are essential arguments for buying a knife of this category. This has its price, however, you will be able to use such a chef's knife for a lifetime with proper care.
