Kurosaki-san is a young blacksmith from Echizen and is making great blades for us. He began his blacksmith work in 2002 when he started working in Kanehiro-uchi-hamono. He claims he was not a natural blacksmith from the beginning and wanted to quit many times. We are very pleased that he continued!

Here is the 240mm gyuto version of this impressive line from Kurosaki-san. This gyuto has a really nice profile with grinds that are outstanding and super sharp edges out of the box. R2 is powdered steel that is fully stainless and has great edge retention. These steels are made with very unusual processes (powder metallurgy), and they have an extremely rich chemical composition resulting in some unique and desirable characteristics for knives.

This knife is quite thin, especially behind the edge, slightly tall, and of nicely balanced. There is nothing average about its performance or looks. You simply have to see and hold this exquisite instrument to truly appreciate the many wonderful attributes that Kurosaki has built into this fine knife.

Once you try this knife you will have a hard time picking up another. It's a great example of the craftsmanship this up-and-coming artisan is producing.
