Kurosaki Senko SG2 Santoku 165mm

Yu Kurosaki is undoubtedly one of the most outstanding talents in Japanese knife making right now. This still young blacksmith is setting standards and creating trends in an industry that is founded on tradition. His creations span such a wide variety of techniques, finishes, materials, and styles that it is hard to comprehend.

His unique hammered finishes are garnering widespread attention in the knife world, and the Senko line just adds to that allure. As with all of his creations, this knife is way more than looks. Kurosaki-san makes his blades with an eye towards performance. One look at the choil shots shows the sublime grinds that make the Senko a king of speed and agility.

The Senko Santoku is made from SG2 powdered metallurgical stainless steel. SG2 stainless steel possesses high edge retention while being moderately wear-resistant and easy to sharpen. The core steel is clad with softer stainless steel to protect and add strength to the blade. Then comes the finish! And in true Yu Kurosaki form, it is a stunner. The flashing sparkles of light that are created by his design give the blade its unique identity.

The santoku knife is the most popular knife style in Japan and is a great all-around knife that is well proportioned and weighted for most average users in the home. They excel at chopping and push/pull cutting. A nicely finished and balanced handle made of rosewood with a pakka wood ferrule completes this compelling package.

      Kurosaki Senko SG2 Santoku 165mm, January 11, 2022
    Posted By: Kristopher Lee

    This is my first Yu Kurosaki knife and it WILL NOT be my last! If you're looking at this knife I'm sure you have already done research on what you want/need and felt all the hype. I have been using this knife off and on for a couple months in my resturant and everyone who has used it to slice, dice or even looked at it had somthing good to say. The fit and finish is one of my personal favorites, the way the knife looks is just stunning. The performance can match too! Have no fear getting this knife. I wish we had a shop around here so I could check out all his outstanding tsuchime work!
    Cheers!
    Kris
