We are pleased to be able to present another great knife made by one of our favorite blacksmiths, Itsuo Doi. He is the son of the famed blade maker Keijiro Doi and has been making top shelf knives for many years. Following in such illustrious footsteps can be a daunting task, but Itsuo-san has more than accounted for himself in this industry.

This is an unusual knife, but one that would find favor with a variety of users from die hard rocking cutters to butchers and grill masters. The blade is fashioned from Aogami 2 steel which is a favorite of many knife users and aficionados. It is one of the harder steels to forge but when done correctly can stand up to virtually any other steel in terms of edge retention, wear resistance, and toughness. The inner core is clad with a soft iron for added strength and durability. The outer layer is finished with a fine satin look, while the edge Aogami steel is polished to a high luster.

The blade is attached to a beautifully made octagonal handle made from Japanese yew (taxus cuspidata) wood. Japanese yew wood is dense, hard, and has a beautiful luster. In fact it was commonly used to make ceremonial and exotic tools for high-level officials in ancient Japan. The ferrule is made from black buffalo horn and is perfectly mated to the wood handle.

This is a limited edition item that would make a wonderful addition to any collection or serious knife userís quiver.
