Yu Kurosaki was born in 1979 in the small town of Sabae, near Seki, Gifu Prefecture. He left school at 16 and originally went to work in the automotive industry. However, since his childhood he was fascinated by the art of forging, knives in particular. When a position opened for a junior apprentice with a nokaji of great reputation, Kato-san, he jumped at the chance and joined this outstanding blacksmith at the age of 17. He spent 15 years with Kato-san, then 8 years with Anryu-san, Living Treasure of Japan. For the last 5 years he has been the Senior teacher at the Takefu Knife Village Association (TKV) School of Knife Making. He is the youngest blacksmith to be granted the title of Master Nokaji by TKV.

We are currently offering 2 lines of beautiful knives from master blade smith Yu Kurosaki using R2 powdered steel. The Kurosaki R2 wa-petty is a beautifully crafted knife from the master blacksmith. R2 steel is also known as SG-2 and it is a highly regarded alloy for making fine kitchen blades. The core steel is covered with a stainless steel in a san-mai construction. The stunning finish is hard to capture in photographs.

The knife is laser thin behind the edge and has a balance and lightness that is hard to describe. It comes with a traditional style octagonal rosewood handle. You really need to try this knife to get a feel for its outstanding attributes.
