Kitaoka Blue #2

Director: Hideo Kitaoka Traditional Craftsman Born: March 23, 1950. "I was born on March 23, 1950. It has been over 30 years since I succeeded our family business of pounding knives. I have been doing my best to learn skills a little bit at a time from watching how my father worked. There has been many times when I felt frustrated, but it is fun and really enjoyable to make 10 or 20 knives with the same shape by pounding a hammer on red-hot iron lump. I think that’s what the mind of craftsman is. Traditional handicraftsmen requires us to acquire one skill at a time and we have to learn it with our hands and body. I have realized how difficult to keep traditional handicraftsmen. I make Deba and Japanese knives mainly, and I would like to try my best to make amazingly sharp and “cut that-makes-you-feel-great” knives as the 3rd generation."

The knives in this section are made with a blue #2 steel and have excellent edges that will last a long time. HRC on these knives is 63/64 and they're top quality sushi knives that will give long service to sushi line cooks. All of these knives are right handed, single bevel with ho wood D shaped handles.
