Makoto Kurosaki is the older brother of famed blacksmith, Yu Kurosaki. He started Working for Hiroshi Kato at the same time as Yu. He shares time with both Kato and brother Yu, making knives for many well-known Takefu knife brands.

His primary focus is on sharpening blades and he takes it very seriously. Makoto has trained with Mr. Morihiro, one of the great sharpeners working in Japan today, and judging from his latest creations he has learned his lessons very well! These knives have grinds that are as good as they get.

This fine looking gyuto is made from a san-mai sandwich of SG2 Powdered Metallurgical steel and a soft stainless alloy. His blades are lasers in the truest sense of the word, and they drop through food like few others. This is really well proportioned blade with a cutting edge length of 245mm and a height at the heel of 50mm. It has a generous flat spot from the heel which transforms to a gentle belly at about the mid-point of the blade.

Breaking into the knife business now is very difficult given that there are a lot of established names out there. Makoto-san is therefore offering these knives at a great price. Highly recommended!
