Description

Yu Kurosaki is a young talented blacksmiths well known in Japan by producing very unique blade design. He has so much passion making new knife all the time, and I am so happy to him thinking of new design. You can feel his love for his knives, and it’s super super sharp, and I hope you don’t loose some of your fingers! Please be careful and enjoy your cooking with his knife.

This series of blades is incredibly sharp, made up of R2 powdered steel sandwiched between a hammered stainless steel cladding. The R2 steel is very highly regarded, has excellent wear resistance and a high edge retention. R2 powdered steel is a stainless steel so you need do no more than use, wipe, dry and store. The handle being wood should not be immersed in water.  This combined means it is incredibly easy to sharpen and maintain. Yu Kurosaki makes knives that really stand out. These truly have the wow factor with their unique hammered and highly polished finish. A knife rack with this addition would be a sight to envy.

Japanese blades are all about sharpness and the ability to cut. To achieve that they are always thinner than most Western knives. As a result a little extra care is needed with them. That said they are more than up to the job of working in any kitchen be it pro or home.

The octagonal handle we know well from many Japanese knives is very comfortable and the blacksmith has taken the time round off all the parts where your fingers may touch if using a pinch grip. Lightweight and with a good balance point you will use less effort when cutting for long periods.

This is incredible knife from Yu Kurosaki so buying this you are getting yourself a great value for money.
