Our latest blacksmith find, Kyoshi Shindo, works and resides in Tosa, Japan. He's a young blacksmith with a bright future ahead of him.

The first knives in this new line are made with SRK8 steel which is an alloy that boasts some similarities to Hitachi Shirogami #2. In the case of SRK8, chrome and nickel are added for extra toughness and resilience. The steel is heat-treated to HRC 63+. It should therefore hold a good edge and be easy to sharpen.

These are really fine knives featuring a well-done kurouchi finish on the upper blade road that fades to a nice matte sand-blasted lower portion. The core SRK8 steel shows really well against this backdrop. A great-looking burnt oak wood handle with an urushi finish makes a perfect match for the blade. We do not carry a saya that fits this knife.

      Wonderful Knife
    Posted By: Brandon Walsh

    I have slowly become a bigger and bigger knife geek. I have some really nice knives, including a Bob Kramer Meiji. This knife is the best knife I have ever purchased. I put an edge on it myself. It didn't come dull, but it will be much sharper if you clean it up, or better yet pay for Mark to do the finish sharpening for you. It's hard to express just how incredible the performance is on it. It will change color fairly quickly, forming a really nice patina. Be sure to take care of it properly, but it's a work of art. The handle is really comfortable and it's perfectly balanced and very light. Mark who runs the website is very responsive and the ideal person to work with. I liked it so much I bought a Bunka from the same maker as a gift for a friend.

      I love my new Kiritsuke knife
    Posted By: Howard

    I just got this knife a few days ago and I absolutely love it. I've been wanting a Japanese knife made by a blacksmith for a long time as I've only had Shun knives in the past. They are usually out of my price range. I love the video you have of him doing his craft as it was a big selling point for me. It makes this knife feel more special. It is very sharp and well balanced. It's a pleasure to dice and slice with it. I'm looking forward to putting this knife through it's paces.
