Yu Kurosaki is rapidly becoming one of the most revered blade makers working out of the famous Takefu Knife Village in Echizen, Japan. He began his blacksmith work in 2002 when he started working in Kanehiro-uchi-hamono. He claims he was not a natural blacksmith from the beginning and wanted to quit many times. We are very pleased that he did not!

His abilities with a wide variety of steels and finishes are quite amazing and it seems like every year he adds yet another steel or technique to his already bulging portfolio. As with his other knife lines, the specifications of the Kurosaki R2 Gyuto 240mm are about average for blades of this size. The overall profile is quite thin, especially behind the edge, it is slightly tall, and of average weight. However there is nothing average about its performance or looks!

One glance at the choil shot tells you everything you need to know about how this stunner will perform. The grind is something to behold. Now add to that artistry one of the most unique looking blade finishes we have ever seen, and you end up with a collectible piece of functional art for your kitchen.

Yu Kurosaki has done it again. The beautiful cladding and excellent grinds make for one of our finest knives on the site. We are so very pleased to be able to offer these gorgeous knives to our customers. This one has a fantastic looking custom octagonal handle.
