Kousuke Muneishi is a 3rd generation blacksmith from Tosa Japan which is located a couple hours drive from Hiroshima on the Pacific coast. 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 blademaking 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!

This double edge kiritsuke is made from Blue #2 steel that is clad with soft iron. He uses the san-mai method and leaves the forgerís scale (kurouchi) on the blade face. The grind is very well realized and quite sophisticated. It is thin behind the edge and has a nice profile that will match most kinds of cutting styles.

This knife is fitted with a beautiful custom made handle by one of our team of woodworkers giving it a unique look and long-lasting durability.
