 Renkei: A Meeting of Excellence Between Italy and Japan in Cutlery

Renkei: A Symbol of Collaboration and Innovation


due cigni"Renkei" embodies collaboration and synergy, two fundamental concepts in the project that brings together Coltelleria Collini of Busto Arsizio, Due Cigni Cutlery of Maniago, and the Japanese steel supplier, Takefu Steel. This partnership has led to the creation of a set of knives that represent the perfect fusion of Italian and Japanese cutlery traditions.


Takefu SteelJapanese VG10 Steel: A Heritage of Quality and Tradition

The choice of Japanese VG10 steel for our Renkei set is rooted in the rich history of Japanese cutlery. Developed by Takefu Steel, this steel is known for its exceptional qualities of resistance and durability. Its origin is linked to the ancient Japanese tradition of forging blades, a practice that has evolved over the centuries to offer today's superior quality steels for the finest knives.

67-Layer Lamination Technique: Art and Science in Cutlery

The 67-layer lamination of VG10 steel is a process that combines ancient Japanese techniques with modern metallurgical technology. This technique not only ensures superior strength and flexibility but also creates a unique design on the blade surface, with wave patterns that are the result of this meticulous manufacturing process. This feature is not only a distinctive aesthetic element but also attests to the high quality and precision in the creation of each knife.


Design and Functionality: The Full Tang Blade and Blue Micarta Handle of Renkei Knives


In addition to the features already mentioned about the steel used, each knife in the Renkei series is distinguished by its full tang blade, which ensures superior balance and strength.

The full tang structure, where the blade extends the full length of the handle, provides exceptional control and stability during cutting. The handle, made of blue micarta, not only gives the knives an elegant and modern look but also ensures a comfortable and secure grip.

The three rivets enhance the structural solidity of the knife and add a refined aesthetic touch, completing the elegant and functional appearance that characterizes the entire Renkei series.
