Kurosaki Knives

Yu Kurosaki began his blacksmithing apprenticeship in 2002 with second generation, master blacksmith Hiroshi Kato. Over 10 years later he is considered one of Japan’s youngest master blacksmiths and has established his own brand, Kurosaki Knives.

Based in the Takefu Knife village of Echizen Japan, Yu Kurosaki is the youngest blacksmith to be granted the Master Nokaji title and to become a senior teacher.

Kurosaki knives have a unique style, are typically very thin and light weight and a pleasure to use. The knives produced by Kurosaki Knives are all hand forged and precision sharpened. Steels used at Kurosaki Knives include some of the best quality steel used in the kitchen knife industry including SG2 (R2) and VG10 Super Steel.

Yu Kurosaki is clearly a passionate, master craftsman and we believe his products speak for themselves. Try them for yourself, we are confident you will agree.
