The Kurosaki Shizuku R2 Wa-Gyuto is a knife that has some seriously great looks with outstanding performance to match.

We have a high regard for young blacksmith Yu Kurosaki. He is the brother of Makoto Kurosaki, another of our favorites! Kurosaki-san started work as a smith with Kanehiro Uchi Hamono in 2002 and, along with his brother, trained under famed blacksmith Hiroshi Kato. He is kept incredibly busy making knives for several different brands including Masakage and his own brand of Kurosaki knives.

Kurosaki-san constructs this small gyuto using the very popular R2 stainless steel. R2 is a powdered steel that is fully stainless and possesses great edge retention. This is a good choice for those wishing to avoid the careful maintenance required by high carbon alloy knives. The unique and very attractive stainless cladding sparkles in the light, while the textured finish releases food in an almost magical way. Kurosaki-san gives the blade a beautifully realized convex grind, so ingredient separation is first rate.

This gyuto has a shorter than normal blade that will appeal to those with smaller hands or work areas. It is a really versatile knife that can do almost anything asked of it. The striking looks of the blade are complemented by a lovely traditional octagonal rosewood wa handle.
