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.
Keep on eye on https://egregius.be/knife-collection for more knives to come.
