Shortly after successfully crowd-funding its Kuroi Hana Knife Collection that flaunted intricate patterns on the business side, Edge of Belgravia is following it up with another one called the Shiroi Hana Knife Collection. Roughly translated, the names of each set mean “The Black Flower” and “The White Flower” respectively. It appears to be a beautiful expression of the philosophy of yin and yang crafted into sharp tools for gastronomy. We take a closer look at the fairer-toned version of these elegantly-forged blades
They say that it’s the chef and the quality of ingredients that create an excellent meal. However, you might be surprised how much these artisans of the gourmet world depend on their knives to make their exquisite creations come alive. Low-quality cutlery can ruin each slice of the ingredients, which is why it’s important to invest in a set of top-shelf blades that can slice through anything like butter.
What gives each knife an unparalleled cutting performance is the AUS-10 Japanese steel core forged with 67 alternating layers of premium steel. The magnificent combination is rated with a hardness range of 58-60 HRC, highly-durability, and an outstanding resistance against corrosion. The light damascene outlines are further enhanced by the polished surface, which is truly a sight to behold. Furthermore, the shape of its ergonomic grip lends a stylish accent to its mesmerizing appearance.
