Kei Kobayashi is a young blacksmith who, until now, was mainly involved in knife sharpening and finishing. He had never made complete blades before these, which makes the achievement even more remarkable, because they are really fine knives!

He has picked SG2 as the first steel he will be offering. The super dense grain structure and purity of SG2 make it both harder and yet less brittle than other similar steels. So we have a knife with the ability to take and retain a very fine edge that is also incredibly durable. It is this combination of outstanding edge performance and toughness that results in SG2 being considered by many to be one of the world’s best blade materials for use in kitchen knives. The inner core of SG2 is clad with a softer stainless steel for added protection.

These are lasers in the true sense of the word. They are super thin and very well finished. The spine and choil areas have been nicely rounded and the stainless jigane has been given a fine hairline finish. This emphasizes the exposed hagane at the edge. An unusual seven-sided handle made from a single piece of lacquer-treated wood rounds out this picture of a great gyuto. This is an impressive start to a new blacksmithing career!

      Razor sharp right out of the box, September 21, 2020
    Posted By: JP Chang - verified customer

    The grind and polish on the blade is impressive. Not many out there can compete with this in terms of the finish. But unfortunately, the bubble wrap packaging has caused some stain on the lacquered handle. I can't seem to get rid of it unless I sand it down and apply another layer of lacquer.

    The blade is thin, strong, and flexible. Super unique seven sided handle. Added CKTG finish sharpening service for the first time. So sharp, I have never cut with a knife that sharp ever!

    The sharpness of this Kobayashi knife is outstanding. The fit and finish impeccable. A true laser; light and precise drenched in red, shiny, polished beauty. A superb performer for pure and effortless slicing.
