Tamahagane San Knives are balanced with a stainless steel weight which attaches to the tang and is visible at the heel of the handle. Not only does this add to the beauty of the SAN design, it also creates fantastic balance. The outside layers are softer and more stain resistant than the cutting edge and actually protect the cutting edge.
