Our recent trip to Japan gave us the opportunity to meet with Itsuo Doi, one of our favorite blacksmiths working in Sakai City. During this time, we asked him to make some knives specifically for our customers. He has responded with these beautiful knives that he has created with his co-collaborators, master sharpener Yamatsuka San and his son, Tatsuo Yamatsuka, who specializes in mirror finishing blades.

Doi-san fashions this beautiful blade from Aogami #2 carbon steel which he hardens to 62+ HRC. He uses the san-mai method of awase to clad the blade in a soft iron to protect and strengthen the inner core, or hagane. Of course as it is a carbon steel, this knife is reactive and will need careful maintenance to prevent corrosion.

At 215mm this is a mid-length knife that has a slightly taller than average blade height. It is quite stout at the spine and very stiff at the tip. It boasts a symmetrical 50/50 edge and a really well formed profile, suitable for both push and rocking cutters.

The aesthetics of the stunning blade are perfectly matched by the custom handle made from dyed maple. Hand chiseled kanji characters complete this picture of elegance and outstanding craftsmanship.
