The two types of steel are forged and combined together. The name "HAIKU" is hammered by hand into the blade. Thereafter, the blade receives the HAIKU Falcon. With correct care, these works of art can be passed on to subsequent generations. This cnife is not made of stainless steel and requires particular care!
