Yoshimitsu Tamahagane Santoku. We receive just a few of these blades every year that are made with true Tamahagane steel. This santoku his hand made and the cladding is done by the blacksmith so each one is unique.

The invention of this steel hundreds of years ago from Yusuke iron sands launched the Japanese into modernity and for a time they were the best sword makers in the world (many think they still are). The tradition of making Tamahagane steel has been ritualized and craftsman from the region make about a ton of this steel every year in a ceremony using techniques that have been passed down for many generations. The steel is then sold in small allotments to master swordmakers and blacksmiths for use primarily in Japanese Katanas.

Yoshimitsu is a small blacksmith in the region and has from time to time gotten small quantities of the steel and they were kind enough to use all of it in the production of a few blades exclusively for CKTG. Please note that these knives often have tiny finishing imperfections consistent with hand hammered knives. The Yoshimitsu brothers make their own Hagane and Jigane, and also do their own cladding. It's amazing that they can take sand iron and turn it into these knives but please be aware that There are often hammer marks and small scratches in the cladding and this is considered normal for these knives.
