Nakagawa Ginsan Bunka 170mm. On my first trip to Japan, I visited Mr. Kenishi Shiraki who at the time was considered one of the top blacksmiths in Japan. During my visit, I met a young apprentice named Satoshi Nakagawa who had been working with Shiraki san for a couple of years. Now Mr. Shiraki has retired and Nakagawa san has taken over the business and is now a master smith in his own right. He is one of the few blacksmiths that are doing honyaki blades which are very difficult to forge out of a single piece of carbon steel.

This blade you see here is made with Silver 3 steel also known as Ginsan steel. It's fully stainless and one of our favorite steels for kitchen knives.

Also after being tipped off by our forum customers I enquirer about the rumor that Morihiro san sharpened these blades and this was confirmed by our contact.
