Description

Exemplifying the most intricate techniques of forging, layering, and hammering, Kurouchi translates as Black Forged and is a traditional Japanese method of crafting high carbon knives. This unique style of forging offers an unpolished rustic finish. With a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 62-63, the inner core of Blue Steel #2 is prized for its high edge retention. The most versatile and one of the most popular knives that a cook can have today is a Santoku knife.

The Santoku knife is a Japanese all-purpose knife with a round tip. The blade is shorter and thinner, making it perfect for home cooking. Santoku literally mean three virtues, and can be used for meat, fish, and vegetables. A lacquered protective wooden sheath called a “Nuri Saya” is included, which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use. Every knife from Yoshihiro is handcrafted by master artisans creating a unique one of a kind work of art. Preparing delicious meals starts with taking wholesome ingredients and using the best tools such as a high quality chefs knife to make every meal into something special. From dicing, slicing, and chopping fresh produce from a farmers market to carving a roast chicken straight from the oven, even the simplest tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional.

Care & Sharpening: Traditional Japanese knife making values a sharp edge, which requires attention and care. Sharpening and honing should be done with only water whetstones. Hand wash and dry only, and do so immediately if working with acidic ingredients. Do not use on objects such as bones, nutshells, and frozen foods.
