Kurosaki Knives

Hand crafted in Japan

Really! No introductions necessary for this Echizen master. A long-time supporter of Modern Cooking, we have been working with Yu Kurosaki Knives for close to 10 years.

The youngest blacksmith to ever attain the title of Master, Yu Kurosaki is considered a Rockstar in the Japanese knife making industry. His premium level of fit and finish and undeniably cool style have shone a light on the blacksmiths of Echizen, Japan. To own a Kurosaki knife is to own a piece of Japanese knife making history.

The highly sort after kitchen knives forged by Japanese blacksmith Yu Kurosaki come in several different tsuchimi hammered patterns, including Shizuku, Senko, Fujin, Raijin and Juhyo. Each hammered finish has been inspired by the Japanese gods and nature. The Tsuchimi hammered patterns are both beautiful and functional as they reduce the likelihood that food will stick to the face of the blade as you work with the knives.
