Overview
Zubeng knives are handmade by Master Rich Chen (Zubeng), who forges Tamahagane steel using the traditional methods of Japanese swordsmiths. 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. Master Chen makes and uses this Tamahagane steel for all his swords and knives.

This knife features an extremely sharp Tamahagane blade that is ground on both sides and a exotic wood (box elder?) handle. 1/16" blade thickness and 1 1/8" blade depth. Full tang construction. The blade has been differentially heat treated by hand for a hard cutting edge and softer spine, and has a visible hamon. Excellent work. Mint Condition.
