Product Description

This 210mm Kurosaki R2 Gyuto is a special limited-edition model from Kurosaki knives. As if the stunning Shizuku range of kitchen knives couldn’t get any better this model comes with a custom made octagonal urushi or lacquerware handle. It feels and looks amazing.

The blade is made out of SG2 high performance powder steel and clad in stainless steel. Like all knives in the Shizuku series this knife is finished with a unique Tsuchimi or hammered finish, which also has the practical benefit of helping with food release.

The fit and finish is really nice, the Urushi handle is fitted perfectly, and the spine and heel are nicely ground off. This knife has absolutely no rough edges. The balance point is a little bit in front of the heel on this 210mm Gyuto, which makes for a really nimble pinch grip.

Kagerou edition Shizuku blades come with a custom all black box with fitted red inlay and are shipped with a plastic, bubble wrapped, protective sleeve. The knife is razor sharp straight out of the box. This is an absolutely beautiful knife and the hand forged SG2/R2 steel will hold an edge for a very long time.
