Makoto Damascus White #2 Santoku. This is a new line of knives that we are having made for us by Makoto Kurosaki. Makoto and his younger brother, Yu, apprenticed under the watchful eye of notable blacksmith Hiroshi Kato. In fact, Makoto still works for Kato-san some of the time, while also sharing time with his brother in the new shop he has established in Echizen.

This santoku uses a kurouchi finish with damascus cladding to give it a rustic look. He also did this one with a ho wood oval handle with black pakka wood ferrule. The blade, which features Hitachi White Paper #2 as its core steel, is a hammer-forged san-mai construction. One of the things that really captured our attention is the superior grinds at this low price point.

    5  Great knife, Great value, August 13, 2017

    The Makoto W#2 is a beautifully made, excellently ground, and well finished santoku. Very thin at the tip, and extremely sharp OOTB. Dicing onions is a breeze with the blade releasing easily. Both the Damascus cladding and the core are quickly reactive, so you can't be careless with cleaning, but this knife is going to be one of my favorites. And at such an inexpensive price!
