Details & Dimensions
Master Shin makes roughly 300+ different designs of knives and farm tools. He uses railroad tracks, repurposing the carbon steel which is rich in manganese and can be heated to a very high temperature. This steel is hardened, wear-resistant, and good for cutting. The handles are made of chestnut and slowly dried in sunlight for years so it is lightweight, strong, and rot-resistant.
With knife production, the steel is hammered a thousand times to reach the thin and sharp edge, which keeps sharp longer than inferior knives. Master Shin’s knives do not have the angular beveled edge seen in Japanese and Western knives; this is Master Shin’s preference which takes additional hammering to achieve and is another unique feature of his.
Master Shin uses an X banding technique “dang ghi” around the wood handle without burning the wood, one of his many trademarks. In Korea, the X mark was reserved traditionally for high-quality knives, to distinguish them from lesser-quality iron-rich steel. Master Shin’s blades are stamped with his mark, the #60 referring to his heritage status.
Known for its top-quality enamelware produced in a carbon-neutral facility, a 40-step handmade process to manufacture each product. The result is a long-lasting, non-reactive, anti-bacterial, cut, and scratch-resistant effect.
