Kurosaki Kokusen AS Bunka 170mm. Yu Kurosaki excels in creating knives that are truly athletic in character, performing equally as well cutting dense produce as they do gliding through onions. Much of this is due to how thin his knives get behind the edge and the wonderful convex grind on the blade which becomes nearly imperceptible towards the tip. Just one look at the choil photograph reveals this talented blacksmith's amazing craftsmanship and design abilities.

Kurosaki-san has used AS carbon steel, with a stainless steel cladding. The core steel is hardened to 63-64 HRC. The distinctive way in which they finish these knives is not for looks alone. The unique and beautiful cladding shimmers in the light as it releases food in an almost magical way.

A really nice octagonal handle made of rosewood with a pakka wood ferrule echoes the fine fit and finish of the blade and completes a well made, great performing kitchen knife package.
