Our handmade Yoshihiro Blue High Carbon Steel #2 Kurouchi Series Santoku Japanese Multipurpose Knife are at the top of its class in performance. Exemplifying the most intricate techniques of forging, layering, and hammering, this black forged knife, or Kurouchi in Japanese, is a traditional 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 High Carbon Steel #2 is prized for its high edge retention.
