Hand forged and ground by blacksmith Yoshihiro Yauji with a ginsanko stainless core and a suminagashi damascus stainless cladding. 

Yauji-san is a relatively young knife maker working out of Takefu. He has been making forging, grinding and finishing is own work since 2019 after completing an apprenticeship under Hideo Kitaoka beginning in 2003. 

These have a very thin grind behind the edge for smooth cutting but are best suited for those familiar with the demands of a Japanese knife. No twisting or scraping the edge and especially no cutting bones or other hard items. 

This knife has a hard steel core with a softer stainless damascus cladding for added durability. Even though it is stainless do not leave wet. Hand wash & dry, no dishwasher. Hardwood-end grain or softwood long grain cutting boards are preferred; avoid bamboo and plastic cutting boards.
