Another knife arrived today and again from a Kickstarter campaign I pledged last year.
The knife was designed by the Dane Aske Bisgaard Pedersen. It’s made of VG-10 covered by 66 layers of Damascus steel. It has a Rockwell hardness of 61-62 HRC. Together with the Fiery Phoenix the hardest knives in the collection.
Of course, the first thing to do with a new knife is the paper test. And wow, this one is razor sharp from the factory. No need to strop it, maybe even sharper than the Miyabi.
