New Chef Knife 8.25inch Super Gold Steel with traditional laquere handle

 

We're happy to announce that we became friends with Yu Kurosaki and he agreed to supply a few of his premium knives that he hasn't sold to anyone yet in Japan.

The blade is made with Super Gold Steel which some people called it High Speed Steel as the row material originally used in high speed machines such as electric drills so this is very durable and hard. This is not a Stainless Steel but it is hard to rust.

You can see hammer dimples all over the blade and it is very rare that he does this kind of processing as his trade mark has been sharp edgy cutting trace on the blade.

The handle is called Urushi which is a Japanese traditional laquere paint that we only use it for special occasions.

Laquere craftsman painted red on bottom and black on top of it.
Therefore you can see red growing from under black especially it is more clear on each octagonal edge where black surface was thinner.


Please check out uploaded video here. 
The knife a professional Japanese chef is using in the video is a different type of Kurosaki's knife but same steel so you can see how sharp it is.

 

Please notice that Kurosaki usually takes 1-2 months to make this knife.

Blade : Super Gold (High Speed Steel)
Handle : Magnolia Wood +Traditional Laquere (bladeck & red)
