Another great series of the Hatsukokoro brand. Komorebi (こもれび) refers to the effect of sunlight passing through trees and leaves. A perfect way to describe the subtle contrasting finish in Aogami steel at the heart and the soft steel of these knives.
In addition to the beautiful aesthetics of the surface, the Komorebi Damascus series has a higher heel height dimension for blades of the same Length of Japanese blade. It offers extra clearance for fingers and knuckles and therefore ease of cutting large food in your kitchen. In addition, the convexity along the edge provides greater durability.
