The most discussed and anticipated brand of knives we carry bears the name Konosuke. Whenever we introduce a new line of these high quality knives the chatter is loud and excited. The arrival of the new MM series reinforced this tradition and since we began selling them the followers of the brand have scooped them up with enthusiasm.
The Konosuke MM Blue #2 Gyuto is the shorter of the two Konosuke Blue steel knives that we sell. Both gyutos, both combining the industry leading fit and finish with some of the best grinds we see. The use of Aogami 2 steel makes for an easy to sharpen blade which has a relatively long lasting edge, even in the toughest of circumstances. The hagane is laminated san-mai style with a soft iron cladding which is decorated with a brushed hairline finish. It is enhanced with some beautifully executed hand engraved Kanji elements.
In order to set these fine knives apart even more we have obtained some without handles. We have commissioned some of our top woodworkers to add their creative touch to these blades. We will be adding new versions as we sell out of each, and the picture will change to reflect this.
