Hataka Blue steel #2 Kurouchi Walnut Handle 165mm

Regular price ¥17,500 ¥17,500

Knife name: Hataka
Material: Blue steel #2/Aogami No.2
Finish: Kurouchi
Handle: Walnut Handle
Blade type: Double-edged
Blade length: 165mm
Origin: Tosa City in Kochi prefecture

Used for chopping, dicing, mincing fruits and vegetables. The gently curved blade improves functionality for rocking and chopping. Hakata is located on the southern island of Kyushu, as this knife style was once part of any home kitchen.

Aogami No.2 (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is made by adding Chromium and Tungsten / Wolfram to Shirogami No.2. This results in increased toughness and the production of hard carbide molecules which improve edge retention. Many knife users have noted that while Aogami No.2 is very similar to Shirogami No.2 in terms of edge sharpness, it has slightly superior edge retention.

Kurouchi Finish, the unprocessed (black) part on the top side of the blade has already developed a dark patina, which protects the blade and gives it a traditional Japanese look.

Product Features

Handmade Forging

With the traditional forging process, the molecules of the iron material are finely tuned, leading to the completion of a "living kitchen knife" that breathes.

Durability

The process of heating and forging each material for mold making is repeated three or four times to quickly shape the blade and create durability before the carbon is released from the steel causing it to lose its original strength.

Sharpness

The blade is the most important factor in achieving the best possible sharpness. It is polished in our own blade factory to produce uncompromising sharpness.

Handle

The highest priority is placed on sturdiness, a sense of luxury, and a shape that is easy to grip and does not cause fatigue even after long hours of use.
