Description

Our handmade Yoshihiro Blue Steel Suminagashi knives are crafted with extraordinary skill by our master artisans. Exemplifying the most intricate techniques of forging, layering, and hammering, Aoko Blue Steel #2 with a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 62, is forged with iron to create the most elaborate of finishes. Suminagashi translates as floating ink and refers to the beautiful marbled wave like patterns that extend through the blade from the tip to the heel, unveiling a new mosaic with every sharpening. Only the most skilled of artisans can forge together these metals in such complex puzzle piece formations to fashion knives of this caliber with the highest quality, blending aesthetics and performance.

Our Yoshihiro Blue Steel #2 Suminagashi knives are complimented with a traditional Japanese style handcrafted Shitan rosewood handle with shitan bolster equipped with a protective wooden sheath called a “Saya,” which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use. This specific Saya included with the knife is brush coated with non-toxic lacquer coating made from organic tree saps in Japan.

The most versatile and one of the most popular knives that a cook can have today is a Japanese all purpose chefs knife known as a Santoku knife. 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.

Although traditional Japanese carbon steel knives are not stainless, with proper care they can provide years of enjoyment.
