Tamahagane

Nože Tamahagane izdelujejo v Nigati na Japonskem. Beseda tamahagane je »dragoceno« jeklo - to je prvovrstno surovo jeklo, ki ima potencial, da ga izkušen kovač spremeni v rezilo prave katane, tiste najtrše, fleksibilne, lahke in super ostre. Proizvajajo ga v tradicionalnih talilnicah imenovanih “tatara”,  kjer nastaja po starodavnih procesih iz železovega prahu in čistega oglja. Kataoka uporablja ime Tamahagane za to izvrstno linijo nožev, ki imajo neverjetno in dolgotrajno ostrino in so plod prepleta tradicije, izkušenj in sodobne tehnologije. 

Tamahagane knives are manufactured in Niigata, Japan. The word tamahagane means precious steel. Historically, the word tamahagane has been known as a particular, very pure and high quality steel produced using traditional Japanese techniques. Today, Kataoka uses Tamahagane as the brand name for the exceptional knives it makes from similar quality steels produced using modern techniques. With their unsurpassed sharpness and edge retention, these knives are definitely precious steel.
