Yusaku Blue #2 Tall Petty is made by a young up-and-coming blacksmith we have recently discovered. His name is Kousuke Muneishi and he is a 3rd generation blade maker heralding from Tosa. His grandfather started the Muneishi Cutlery Mfg company in 1955 to produce farming and forestry tools. His son took over management of the business and continues making these specialized cutting tools using mainly Aogami #2 steel.

Now, grandson Kousuke has begun making kitchen cutlery to expand the family business and add to his blade making skills. We are very impressed with these first efforts and have high hopes of a long relationship with this talented young man.

We have named these knives Yusaku and the kanji on the blade reflects this branding. The last character is pronounced Yu, but also can be pronounced as Suke when used in a name. The first kanji is Saku and it means work. So Yu-Saku means the work (or produced by) of Kousuke!

These are high-value knives that belie their keen price. The overall package of well-executed grinds, good fit and finish, and an all-purpose design add up to a knife that will appeal to many users, both professional and home-based. This knife is mated to a beautiful custom handle made by our woodworker Isaiah.

      Yusaku Blue #2 Tall Petty Knife, September 5, 2021
    Posted By: Edwin B Cady

    Camping, Hunting, Sailing and Cooking. A lifetime spent with fine knives from Randall Fighting Knife to European Knife Sets. This is my first Japanese knife and I am totally blown away. It is scary sharp and holds its edge well. I can hone it on my jeans. It is a feather in my hand and I am one with it. If you are an old person, do not buy one, because you will realize you have wasted a lifetime with far less than the best.

    I wanted something a bit different and needed something smaller and more delicate. Price, look, and steel were all good to go and the maker and story makes it cool. I'm now scoping out a guyoto from the same maker. The grind and heat treat seem spot on. It has been touched up once and held it's edge well. What I was hoping for/expecting was an easy to touch up knife and it got screaming sharp very easily. Corrosion is something I'm very cautious of and it's been good with care so far. Would definitely recommend.
