CHROMA Dorimu - The Dream
Two years ago the general manager of the CHROMA factory which produces CHROMA type 301 woke up in the middle of the night.
He have had a dream: To make the best knife!
Regardless of the cost. To show what is possible, to make other knife enthusiasts happy. Nothing highly commercial, but absolutely cool. And he fulfilled his dream: It’s called CHROMA Dorimu. Dorimu is Japanese and stands for „dream“.
His inspiration was the CHROMA HAIKU Itamae that costs around 2-3000 Euro per piece. A damascus knife with wooden handle.
Not this „show“ damascus knife with a VG-10 core like CHROMA HAIKU Damascus and almost all others. One where the damascus cuts and not the core VG-10. This knife can be made sharper and will stay longer sharp.
The output is convincing. A pure damascus forged blade with an Iron-Maple handle that not shrinks. The handle comes from Norway and is treated in a special way, so it will not shrink, so no gaps where food and bacteria can stay. Dorimu is extremely sharp and stays longer sharp. It fits well in the hand and is just a pleasure to work with. A real Dorimu!
