NUDE+ is crafted with simple beauty and high functionality. The blade reflects the traditional craftsmanship based on the spirit of samurai swords. This beautiful tool will be an asset to your modern kitchen.
HARDENED STAINLESS STEEL – NUDE+ series stainless steel has been hardened by addition of AUS8 (8A) carbon (0.8%), chromium (13-14%), molybdenum (0.25%), and vanadium (0.1-1.3%); reducing wear and abrasion, a technique which was developed by Aichi Steel.
TECHNOLOGY AND TRADITION – NUDE+ hardened stainless steel is shaped into a blade and handle by laser, and then tempered and cooled rapidly until -75 degrees. This result in a uniform, stronger, and firmer piece of steel. After this, the blade is finished by hand with the traditional craftsmanship of Seki City.
