Traditional Kurouchi knives will always be made out of highly reactive carbon steel but this knife is exceptional in that the Kurouchi finish is on the Stainless Cladding which is a new development in modern metallurgy and is highly rare and difficult to forge. Our Stainless ‘Kurouchi’ Cladding exemplifies the traditional intricate techniques of Japanese forging techniques with modern stainless metallurgy in order to produce an exceptional blade with the rustic aesthetics of a Kurouchi blade without the maintenance of high-carbon steel.

Description

Kurouchi translates as “Black-Forged” and this unique style of forging offers a characteristic look and an unpolished rustic aesthetic finish to the blade. Our Yoshihiro Kurouchi Stainless Clad Knives are clad in 2 layers of full Kurouchi stainless steel that provides durability and protection without sacrificing its sharp cutting edge. Traditional Kurouchi knives will always be made out of highly reactive carbon steel but this knife is exceptional in that the Kurouchi finish is on the Stainless Cladding which is a new development in modern metallurgy and is highly rare and difficult to forge. Our Stainless ‘Kurouchi’ Cladding exemplifies the traditional intricate techniques of Japanese forging techniques with modern stainless metallurgy in order to produce an exceptional blade with the rustic aesthetics of a Kurouchi blade without the maintenance of high-carbon steel.

With a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 62-63, the inner core of Blue Steel #2 is prized for its high edge retention and provides an extremely sharp edge that is able to maintain its sharpness over extended period of time. The Kurouchi Stainless Cladding allows much of the blade to be more forgiving to exposure to moisture while still having the superior edge retention and sharpness intact.

The knife is complimented with a handcrafted Octagonal Rosewood handle which is comfortable for both left and right handed users. A Lacquered Magnolia wood Saya Cover comes together with the knife for easy and safe storage. 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.
