Nov 16, 2018 /prREACH/ -- KUMA, a brand renowned for its high-quality kitchen knives, has highlighted the benefits of using a Damascus chef knife over other varieties as a part of its 2018 marketing campaign in support of its range of chef knives.
According to a representative at KUMA, “True Damascus steel knives might be a historical artifact since the original process of making them are lost, but the ones reproduced now with the modified processes still possess the same characteristics - the wave-like pattern that is visible on the blade due to the manufacturing process along with a resistance to shattering while still maintaining a very sharp edge.”
Damascus steel was the forged steel comprising the blades of swords smithed in the Near East from ingots of wootz steel imported from India and Sri Lanka. Therefore, blades made using Damascus steel are made using a multi-layer process which is potentially better for the user as a Damascus steel knife will have a sandwiched structure that strikes a balance of both the harder & sharper edge while giving better durability of the entire blade.
Aesthetically speaking, these knives are valued for the unique pattern that is created during the steel making process, thus making each and every knife one of its kind. For this reason, these knives are ideal for gifting, while also providing a better cooking experience.
KUMA as a brand is renowned for its range of high-grade chef knives. They have recently launched an 8-inch KUMA Knife which is made of Japanese Damascus Steel that has been welded with 67 layers. It is sturdy, chip-resistant, and unlike other low-quality knives has been made using an 8-step engineering process to make it corrosion resistant, giving it extra longevity and resistance.
