South Yorkshire-based multi-channel supplier of catering clothing and equipment Russums is increasing its range of performance knives.
Russum has consolidated its position as a key supplier of specialist chefs’ knives with the launch of the Kasumi HM Hammered range.
Suitable for both right and left handed users, the Kasumi HM Hammered knives are made from VG10 cobalt high carbon stainless steel that has been developed specifically for cutting edge blades.
The knife blades are hardened to Rockwell C59 – 60 degrees and feature a distinctive hammer pattern on both sides that serve both to strengthen the blade and to reduce friction and sticking when cutting. The polyacetal resin (POM) handle features a double rivet for strength and an extended bolster to maintain perfect balance.
Russums’ sales and marketing manager, John-Paul Marsden said: “Kasumi knives are made in the same way that traditional Japanese swords are crafted. A steel ingot is folded and forged repeatedly to create fine layers, the centre two made from high carbon stainless steel.
“The HM series features the very latest technical materials and are stunning knives that are perfectly designed for cutting and slicing.”
