Turugi Japonese Knife
General description of the Japanese Turugui knife:
The double edge knife "Turugi" with beautiful design is the most commonly used type for Western sculptures, and is capable of carving wood from any angle.
It is made of aogami steel, also known as blue steel. It is an alloy that contains low amounts of phosphorus and sulfur, it contains tungsten and chromium which are added to make the resistance temperature less critical. In this way, wear resistance is increased. This results in longer blade life and greater flexibility.
The rounded shape of the handle adapts to the hand so that it does not get tired when working long hours.
It is an oxidizable steel so it is not recommended to put acid on the knife. In case of doing it clean it as soon as possible with great care. Regarding its daily maintenance it is recommended to clean the shavings and dust and then use a cloth with camellia oil or rust to prevent rust.
