Ginsu

Over 2400 years ago, the art of forging Damascus knives as we know it today began with the Wootz technology from India. The Damasc...us technology is centered around using different metals heated in a forge, until hot enough to be hammered together into a single piece of material; this is also known as forge welding. This welding process was repeated multiple times to fashion the layers in a large piece of material with the number of layers varying from a few to thousands. The only problem ancient smiths had with this layering process was that it was hard to control by hand, and blades would break apart at their forge welds if not properly done. In following centuries, the process was further refined by wrapping the materials together during the forge welding. Twisting the blank together with the next layer of hot metal as it was hammered added quality to the blade, and was its secret to its ability to hold and edge and have elasticity to prevent snapping off under extreme use. Ginsu Damascus material is made by hot rolling multiple sheets of different grades of stainless steel together and hammering (forge welding) them together in large machines, instead of by hand. Every Ginsu Damascus blade is comprised of 33 layers of stainless steel materials. The core of the blade is comprised of high carbon, very hard Japanese VG-1 stainless steel. The VG-1 stainless steel core is over laid in the forming process with alternating layers of Japanese high carbon 420 and low carbon 430 stainless steels. Each knife blade is then cut from this Damascus stainless steel sheet. The blades are then sharpened to a wickedly razor sharp Asian knife edge angle of 10. This angle ensures that every blade is wicked sharp right out of the box. Each blade is then cryogenically cooled in our proprietary process. The proprietary cryogenic process uses liquid nitrogen to draw the molecules of the steel closer together for ultimate edge retention. read more

Please follow these guidelines to maximize the performance of Mercer's knives:</p> <ol> <li>After each use, carefully wash cutlery by hand with warm water and mild- to medium-strength soap; rinse and thoroughly dry it with a soft towel. <li>Cutlery should never be washed in a dishwasher: the intense heat and radical temperature changes may cause the handle to deteriorate; the blade edges will become dull through rubbing against each other; and caustic soap will cause staining and pitting of the blade. <li>Cutlery should not be soaked or submerged for long periods. Chlorine and bleach products discolor and pit stain-free and high-carbon steel. If chlorine or bleach products come in contact with the blade, thoroughly rinse off immediately. <li>Galvanic action--the transfer of electrons from one metal to another--may cause pitting on the blades. To prevent this, avoid long periods of soaking in aluminum pans or a stainless-steel sink, remove cutlery from condiments (such as mayonnaise) stored in aluminum or stainless-steel pans. <li>Always store cutlery in a cutlery block or sheath to preserve the cutting edges and prevent personal injury. </ol> </div> read more
