Young blacksmith Yu Kurosaki got his start working for Kaneshiro Uchi - Hamono and later on for Masakage producing their Shimo and first run Zero lines. Kurosaki-san's attention to detail and perfection has led him to become one of the premier young blacksmiths in Takefu, Echizen and also Japan. These knives showcase an original style of doing Tsuchime. The "silvered" texture of the blades lends itself to release stuck foods and also reduce friction. All the while looking incredible. With a rockwell hardness of around 63-64 the Shizuku line of knives is a excellent blade for home or professional use and we are proud to offer them here at KNIFE. Handmade in Takefu, Echizen, Japan.
The Shizuku line is a true test of patience and skill. Kurosaki - san hand hammers each individually to create its distinctive tsuchime pattern. Aiding in the separation of food, and making the knife just simply gorgeous.
Please note that this knife is not stainless steel - this Shizuku Gyuto is made with Aogami Super carbon steel. Please keep clean and dry to avoid rusting.
