Itami Matsumoto knives feature a 60-layer Damascus steel construction and handles made from birch treated to resist the cracking, checking, warping, surface oxidation, and dulling that many inferior knives display with age.
Each knife is unique. Wood grain and Damascus steel will have slight variations in pattern and color.
