The Samura MO-V Series Kitchen Knife Steel That Does Count
Single-layer steel of Samura MO-V kitchen knives is one of the undoubted merits of this largely remarkable series. Although less hard than Damascus steel (59 HRC), this steel compensates for it by reduced brittleness, resistance to wear, mechanical and chemical exposure, and unsurpassed durability. The qualitative properties of this steel are ensured by the high content of molybdenum and vanadium in it, as well as other elements that significantly enhance its operating performance.
The collection of MO-V series kitchen knives is notable for its typical Japanese leaf-shaped geometry of the blade, which provides the maximum length of the cutting edge and ease of sharpening and is capable of withstanding heavy work loads. Moreover, it is way easier to sharpen and polish these knives than those having multi-layered blades and can be done even at home.
A hygienic metallic bolster connects the blade to an oval handle made of heat and moisture resistant G-10 fiberglass. Its special structure provides a firm grip preventing the knife from turning and slipping in your hand. Optimal balancing and light weight of knives facilitate to the greatest extent possible their even lengthy operation.
The series represents a wide variety of versatile and highly tailored blades, the purpose of which encompasses the full range of kitchen activities.
The MO-V collection is a multifunctional, practical, and rather budget friendly range with unique performance characteristics ensured primarily by the high quality of Japanese steel kitchen knives.
