Full sized hand forged gyuto from the Maeda family's Motokyuuichi workshop Shimabara City in Nagasaki Prefecture. Kurosagi means black swan and references the dark kurouchi finish from the forge. 

These rustic style knives have a simple unfussy finish, they are in the style of rustic Japanese knives with a good forging and a simple finish that keeps them affordable. This knife has a very robust feel and would be a great fit for those who like a bit of weight in their gyuto. 

Aogami super is famous for it's edge duration, the addition of tungsten and vanadium to it's alloy make for a toothy cutting feel as the edge begins to dull, aogami super holds its peak sharpness well but really gets its duration from it's ability to cut well as it dulls. 

This knife has a hard carbon steel core with iron cladding for added durability. The entire blade will develop a patina with use, especially with acidic foods. Special attention is needed to keep from rusting. 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. Rust can be removed with a light abrasive.
