Makoto Kurosaki is making a new line of blades going by the name of Ryusei, which is Japanese for “shooting star.” A bit like the maker! These new blades are so well made and executed we continue to be impressed and amazed at the overall quality of his work.

The blade is quite thin at the spine and after the high transition to the primary blade road, it thins out even more in a most satisfying way. One look at the choil shot will clearly illustrate the wonderfully thin and precise grind achieved by this budding master.

As of 5-10-2021, Makoto-san is using a new carbon steel for him called VG7 which has similar properties to Blue #2 steel. The blades are clad with stainless steel. This makes for a really great combination of super carbon edge abilities in an easy to maintain and rugged exterior. The VG7 hagane is hardened to 62+ HRC which bestows the blade with the ability to take and hold a super sharp edge.

The blades are beautifully finished, as are all of his knives. These are further enhanced by some well executed hand engraved kanji elements—a great touch and great new knife. A maple and red pakka wood octagonal handle finishes off this knife perfectly.
