  • Our handmade Yoshihiro Ao Ryu Blue Steel knives are crafted with extraordinary skill by our master artisans. Aoko Blue Steel #2 with a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 63 to 64, is intricately forged with iron to create beautiful wave like patterns. It takes a very high degree of skill to create knives of exceptional performance with such exquisite beauty.

    Our Yoshihiro Ao Ryu Blue Steel Deba Filet Japanese Knife has a completely flat ground on front (shinogi), and a concave ground (urasuki) with a flat rim (uraoshi) on the back. As traditional Japanese knives and cutlery value sharpness, the hard, high carbon blue steel #2 lets these tradesmen create a thin, sharp cutting edge on the blade. Its traditional, Japanese, octagonal handle is made of Ebony wood with water buffalo horn bolster. This knife features the traditional, mist-like pattern on the back of the blade from the forging process, and comes with a shitan bolster, magnolia wood knife cover, knife oil, and rust eraser set.

    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. Only use on boneless flesh of fish.
