Kori means "ice" in Japanese and the nice sand blasted finish on this great looking knife certainly has a frosty feel to it. This blade is made entirely by hand by young blacksmith, Mr. Miyazaki. He works from his one-man forge on a small island off the southern coast of Japan close to Nagasaki where he hammer forges a very small line of specialized blades using Blue #2 carbon steel.

Hakata style knives are a variation of banno bunkas. They have that typical reverse tanto style tip that so intrigues many knife lovers. It is a more of a home cooking knife with a triangular nose and curved spine. Hakata is located on the southern island of Kyushu, where this knife style was once part of any good home kitchen. Unlike the more common bocho bunka, the hakata is slightly taller with a more curved cutting edge and pronounced reverse tanto tip. The blade edge is quite flat, favoring push-style cutting techniques.

The inner core of Blue #2 steel is wrapped in a softer iron in the san-mai method of awase. This leaves the Blue #2 edge and spine exposed. The cladding is then treated to a great looking sand blasted finish. We have added a simple octagonal walnut and maple handle to this unique blade.
