For over 30 years, Hideo Kitaoka has been making high-end Japanese knives from his small shop in Takefu Village, Echizen, in Fukui Prefecture. He is especially known for his beautiful and artistic use of the Suminagashi (Damascus) cladding technique. Damascus cladding is popular across the entire knife world and the leading protagonists are revered for their abilities to forge these multi-layer pieces of steel into true masterpieces of form and function.

The Kitaoka Black Damascus series of knives is new to the CKTG store. Kitaoka-san has made these blades from the ever-popular stainless steel, VG-10. This is undoubtedly the most used stainless alloy in the world of Japanese kitchen knives. It is utilized by the biggest makers in Japan to the extent that it is becoming increasingly hard to source from the primary manufacturer.

This is a shorter yanagiba at just 228m in length. Although these knives customarily go up to and even beyond 330mm, this is the perfect size for most home chefs and those working in restricted spaces. It is of course single bevel, so of use only to right-handed users.

The stunning nickel clad blade is coupled to a very well made octagonal handle made from rosewood and black pakka wood. A great look in all respect, and a great knife to match those looks.
