All proceeds for this knife will go to the American Red Cross for Hurricane relief work. Kurosaki R2 Hammered Gyuto 210mm Custom. 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 R-2 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.

    5  Kurosaki R2 Hammered Gyuto, August 28, 2017
    Posted By: Scott Smith - verified customer

    Very impressive knife both from initial looks and quality. Impressive custom handle as well. This knife is like a laser it just feels so light.. Very thin behind the edge especially the tip. I have purchased many knives from CKTG and this is one on the best I have seen so far. Out of the box it was pretty sharp but incredible after touching up a bit. May even try to get an 8 or 9 degree edge on this one. Friends who have come over have all noticed this one.
