Yamashin Blue #2 Kobocho 105mm. They can, of course, be used in other circumstances based upon your needs and likes. These are stout and stiff blades with a really nice geometry and feature a well-made distal taper from the heel to the fine tip.
Considering the very low price point, this knife is well made in terms of grinds and profile.
We supply it with a very nice upgraded handle made from red sandalwood and dyed pakka wood for the ferrule.
