Master Blacksmith Bob Kramer has teamed up with renowned knife company Zwilling to bring the knife world these beauties, the Euroline Damascus series. These are as close to a handmade Bob Kramer as most people will get. The knives are produced in a factory setting with a team of skilled craftsman in the knife mecca, Seki-City, Japan. Located in the center of Japan, it has long played an important part as the crossroads of Japan, connecting the east to the west through such routes as the Nakasendo.
At the core of these knives is SG2 powder steel. The SG2 is a high carbon content and a high alloy stainless steel. Powder metallurgy improves the alloy significantly. The original producer was the Takefu steel company. Basically this steel was designed for knife making, and it totally kicks ass. It takes a SUPER sharp edge, and holds it for an insanely long time when sharpened properly.
All knives in this line are fitted with a very well designed micarta handle. The ergonomic shape is designed for ease of use, and does not fatigue the hand.
