Shibata Knives

Takayuki Shibata is turning out some excellent quality knives with premium steels and excellent grinds. His first offering is a nice series of SG-2 stainless knives called Kotetsu. They are thin, evenly ground lasers with excellent cutting performance.

The Kotetsu was a Japanese ship that had an unusual bow that efficiently cut through the sea and that was the inspiration for these knives with the bunka-like tips. These knives are stainless clad with SG-2 core steel (also called R-2). Shibata-san is a master sharpener and these knives are hair splitting sharp out of the box and they'll hold an edge a long time with this excellent steel.
