This Kurosaki Gyuto is a premium hand forged kitchen knife. The blade has a core of SG2 steel (R2) which is clad in stainless steel and has Tsuchimi (hammered) finish, which looks amazing and helps with food release. The Damascus cladding line is visible and the blade itself is razor sharp straight out of the box.
This Shizuku blade is fitted with a custom made ambidextrous, octagonal Wa (Japanese style) handle, which is finished with a black Pakkawood ferule. The handle has a good length to it, which means it will be comfortable for just about any size hand and the octagonal shape gives an ergonomic feel.
The craftsmanship on the Shizuku range is fantastic and the fit and finish on this knife is no exception. This knife is super thin (1.5mm-2.5mm) and light for a Gyuto of this size. Kurosaki san has ground the spine and choil (heal) to provide and smooth and comfortable feel to the blade itself. The balance on this Kurosaki Gyuto is just forward of the choil and is give the knife a comfortable and nimble feel while use a pinch grip, which is typical of the Shizuku range.
This knife and the Shizuku series are guaranteed to bring satisfaction for many years. The beauty and quality of these knives is second to none and we see them being passed down from one generation to the next.
We have many more Kurosaki knives and other Japanese Kitchen Knives.
Each blade is hand forged in SG2 steel, which allows for a high-level edge retention, super thin and light weight blade. The SG2 steel core in this series of knives is hardened to HRC 62+ and is clad in a softer stainless steel. The knives are highly polished and the fit and finish is sensational.
The side of the blade is decorated in a stylish and practical hammered pattern, which is unique to the Shizuku series of knives. The hammered finish, not only looks great, but helps with food release. Although the hammered pattern might appear rough it is highly polished and smooth. Completing the design is Kurosaki Sans signature chiseled kanji.
The Shizuku series of knives come in a variety of Japanese Wa handles. Including Cherrywood, Rosewood and Lacquerware (Kagerou). The handles are an octagonal ambidextrous shape and fit nicely in the hand.
