I Forge Iron

One Peice Japanese Sushi Knives


Recommended Posts

If you look closely, it does look like they forge welded a pattern welded blade to a monosteel handle. I couldn't say exactly when in the forging process that happened, but it certainly wasn't the last thing. Given that it's now one solid piece of steel from end to end, I don't think it's inappropriate to call it an integral.

There are some interesting little patterns at the bases of those blades. I wish I could see them more closely. It makes me wonder if they started with a monosteel core, stacked up the billet layers on one end (leaving the other one alone), then started welding and folding. Monosteel end becomes handle, billet end becomes blade?
