The Prever series has 67 layers and a core of VG10. This matte finish on the blade is a feast for the eye. Close to the bolster, Ryusen decided to partially mirror finish the blade, which gives the knife its identity. The classic handle is shaped in an "O" and Ryusen adjusted it to our Western hands. The warm colour of walnut is luxurious, but also will not get slippery.
