Sukenari is widely recognised as the original and premium manufacturer of Powder Stainless Steel knives. They were the first to experiment with these types of steels for Japanese knives, and are now considered to be one of the most competent in Japan at this craft. ZDP-189 and SG2 are their preferred alloys, with knives also crafted from Blue Super and HAP40. They have a striking aesthetic, with their mirror finish Damascus, in our opinion, being their standout pieces.
