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.

The edge is the carbon steel which is examined good carbon steel, forged and clad stainless. Since the side is stainless steel, it is hard to rust and it is sanitary.

Amazing Knife!

The first thing I love about the knife is its design of it. I love the modern design of the handle that compliments the tone of the blade itself. It feels lightweight and comfortable to handle. If you think that this knife is too small then you are wrong. Although it may be on the smaller end it still has a great length that is comfortable to use. I do highly recommend this product to anyone who would like one. I will definitely be buying another one in the future! As long as you properly take care of the knife, like the people who crafted it, you will never regret your purchase! Thanks for reading, hope this helps! Danny.

Great knife

Handsom knfe

This is a very good looking knife,
My kitchen is unworthy of this spectacular knife ,it is very sharp and after reading reviews it is best to clean it right after use or it may discolor from the chemicals in the foods. I will probably display it with the rest of my collection.


A well balanced, beautifully crafted knife that's a real pleasure to use. Carefully packaged with fully comprehensive manufacturing QA & timely delivery. Many thanks.

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.


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.


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.


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.
