Exclusively at Sur La Table. Introducing the exquisite Artisan SG2 Collection, handmade in the legendary knife capital of Seki, Ja...pan. “Artisan” reflects the rich tradition of metalworking in Japan—where since the 13th century bladesmiths have honed their craft and developed an almost mythic reputation. Industry-Leading SG2 Core The ice-hardened symmetrical blade is made from Micro Carbide powder steel SG2, which boasts a Rockwell hardness of 63 through a proprietary ice-hardening process called Criodur.
