Yu Kurosaki is rapidly becoming one of the most revered blade makers working out of the famous Takefu Knife Village in Echizen, Japan. He began his blacksmith work in 2002 when he started working in Kanehiro-uchi-hamono. He claims he was not a natural blacksmith from the beginning and wanted to quit many times. We are very pleased that he did not!

His abilities with a wide variety of steels and finishes are quite amazing and it seems like every year he adds yet another steel or technique to his already bulging portfolio. As with his other knife lines, the specifications of the Kurosaki Fujin AS Gyuto 240mm are about average for blades of this size. The overall profile is quite thin, especially behind the edge, it is slightly tall, and of average weight. However there is nothing average about its performance or looks!

One glance at the choil shot tells you everything you need to know about how this stunner will perform. The grind is something to behold. Now add to that artistry one of the most unique looking blade finishes we have ever seen, and you end up with a collectible piece of functional art for your kitchen.

Yu Kurosaki has done it again. The driving rain look of the Fujin is arguably his most unique and finest finish yet. We are so very pleased to be able to offer these gorgeous knives to our customers.

    5  Functional art., June 14, 2019
    Posted By: Brian Weekley

    The package containing this knife arrived from CKTG just before I started preparation of a big family dinner. Seizing the opportunity I am immediately put this gorgeous knife to work. What a pleasure! It made short work of everything but I called upon it to do for my dinner. Nicely balanced, more than adequately sharp out of the box and a pleasure to the eyes. It immediately moved to the front of the line in my knife rotation.
