Features of "WAG NAGOMI | Maru MARU series"
A comfortable sharpness, easy to sharpen the blade even at home
It seems that recent trends of knives tend to harden "blades". At first glance it seems that the sharpness of the blade lasts longer, but in fact it is said that the duration of the sharpness is only slightly extended. The problem is that when the sharpness falls, its hardness will hurt and it will be difficult to sharpen. Therefore, in the "Maru MARU" series, we used a blade material that is not too daring, and we made technical development to raise the hardness in it.
This realizes a comfortable sharpness and easy to sharpen blade. If you can sharpen easily at home, you can use it as long as you care for each use while checking the frequency of use and sharpness yourself. I use it while cleaning. I am happy as long as you attach it to me, it will last forever as a kitchen knife of my life.
