We're fans of Kurosaki-san. He apprenticed under Kato-san and several other master smiths before beginning his career as a solo artisan and he's turning out great blades. This knife features Aogami Super steel and has a nice kurouchi finish. Heat treatment on these knives is about 62 Rockwell and they come with a nice rosewood handle. This blade and edge is evenly ground so they work equally well for right and left handed users.

Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
