This great universal tool isn't as intimidating as a large chef knife and therefore perfectly suited to initiate you to the great world of Japanese knives.
The mat blade is in Aogami Super Steel, which is a powerful carbon steel alloy, with stainless steel cladding. The handle is in rosewood and black pakka wood. This knife will maintain a sharp edge, and will be a pleasure to sharpen.
This beautiful knife is forged by the young Master Kurosaki-san. Before becoming an independent artisan, Yu Kurosaki worked for 13 years with Master Blacksmith Kato of Masakage fame. Kurosaki-san is devoted to creating knives that are both practical and beautiful.
