Yu Kurosaki Gyuto 180mm R2 Senko Series - CustomKurosaki Knives
The handles are not the only element that is unique to this series of custom knives. The blade profile has also been given a custom touch with a Kiritsuke style tip (K-Tip) and adjusted handle to edge angle for improved ergonomics and reduced fatigue. Like the Japanese Wa handle Senko series, this custom Senko blade features an R2 core and the beautiful Senko Tsuchimi (hammered) pattern. Senko represents light and the start like pattern almost shimmers like sun light reflecting on water.
This is a premium knife and features a level of fit and finish that is nearing perfection. You will not find any rough edges, poor joinery or gaps. This is the kind of knife you question using, given its beauty, but makes you feel like the king of the kitchen when you do. The premium knife market features some pretty amazing works of art these days and you can spend a lot of money on a hand forged blade of this quality. These Kurosaki custom blade represents extremely good value for something of such high quality craftsmanship and materials.
We are honoured that Kurosaki san has given us a small selection of these blades including this Gyuto 180mm, as well as a Sujihiki 240mm, Gyuto 240 and a Petty 150mm.
