Master Shin makes roughly 300+ different designs of knives and farm tools. He uses railroad track, repurposing the carbon steel which is rich is 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, slowly dried in sunlight for years so it is lightweight, strong and rot-resistant.
His very large kitchen knife makes quick work of chopping a wide array of meat and heavier produce. The thickness of the blade results in a weightier knife, meaning it does much of the work for you and making meal preparation a breeze.
