Blacksmith Yu Kurosaki is one of our favorite smiths. He is the younger brother of Makoto Kurosaki. He started work as a smith with Kanehiro - Uchi-Hamono in 2002 and, along with his brother, trained under famed blacksmith Hiroshi Kato. Kurosaki-san makes many knives for several different brands including Masakage and his own brand of Kurosaki knives.

This is a really well designed and made gyuto. The blade has a very nice profile which offers a long flat portion at the back of the blade and a well-proportioned belly ending in a fine, slim tip. A 50/50 symmetrical grind is given a convex geometry that we particularly like.

It is made from R2 steel which is a modern steel that boasts some impressive specifications and properties. The steel is a powdered metallurgical alloy made by The Kobelco Steel Company. It is primarily used for the manufacturing of tools. But it is also a great choice for kitchen knives because of its easy to maintain attributes. It is also special in that it can be hardened to a reasonably high rating, in this case 62+ HRC. The core of this knife is covered in a layer of a softer stainless steel for protection and strength. The cladding receives a very attractive hammered finish, which is further enhanced with the addition of some lovely hand-engraved kanji. It is a great looking knife and a great performer too.
