Gesshin Kagero 80mm Wa-Petty

  • Gesshin Kagero knives are constructed with a stainless powdered steel core and softer stainless cladding.  They have very good edge retention and take a very good edge.  These knives have a really nice distal taper, rounded spine and choil, and good edge geometry.  They are not as brittle as some other powdered steels, such as SG1 or SG2, but have equal (and sometimes better edge retention).  They are also pretty easy to sharpen.  The wa-handled versions feature ho wood octagon handles and come with ho wood sayas.
