Zubeng Forge custom knives are made by Master Rich Chen, who makes Tamahagane steel using traditional Japanese Swordsmith methods.
The smelting, folding, forging, heat treating, and hand-polishing of the steel is a long and difficult process. This produces a blade that is extremely sharp and incredibly durable.
This small Tamahagane steel knife has an extremely sharp blade that is ground on both sides and an exotic wood handle. The blade has been differentially heat treated by hand for a hard cutting edge and softer spine and has a visible Hamon.
The knife comes with a leather sheath and is a brand new item from the maker.
Every Zubeng knife is a custom masterpiece and has a different pattern on the blade with different activities and slightly different color exotic wood handle. As of now, we have 6 knives in stock and we numbered them from 1 to 6 (see pictures)
