OverviewZubeng 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.
