Hand made in Sakai, rustic kurouchi finished iron clad aogami 1 forged by dentoukougeishi master smith Yoshikazu Tanaka and expertly ground by Kyuzo, a sharpener that is very well regarded for his wide double bevel work. Tanaka-san’s treatment of aogami is very highly regarded, he manages to incorporate both toughness, ease of sharpening with excellent edge formation with long edge life. We have been fans of Tanaka-san’s for a long time and are very happy to find this collaboration with Hitohira and Kyuzo. 

Slightly larger than usual geometry for a Sakai gyuto but still following in that style, not being finish ground on the faces it has a bit heavier blade. The cedar and horn handle with the kurouchi finish give these a great rustic Japanese country feel.
