Gyuto Blue steel #2 Kurouchi Buffalo Ebony Handle 240mm

H262

Regular price¥49,800
/

All-purpose knife with a pointed tip and a slender blade. The pointed tip enables an easy targeted cut and helps easy slicing meat and fish. It used to be a knife for professional chefs but nowadays is also used by households. Its warped blade helps you apply force to cut food without effort.

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.

I bought this knife as a gift, replacing a kinda crummy santoku for my mom, which had valiantly served for about 20 years. I expected high quality, but I was blown away at the fit and finish. Plus the speedy shipping from Japan, and I expect I'll be dumping too much money into this site in the coming years.

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.
