Hand made in Sakai, stainless clad shirogami 1 forged by dentoukougeishi master smith Kenji Togashi and expertly ground by his son. Stainless clad shirogami 1 is a less common combination as it is more challenging to work but it offers a great combination of the shirogami 1 carbon steel's superb edge formation and with the stainless steel's ease of use.
These are super easy to sharpen with a great cutting duration and smooth cutting feel with nicely finished corners. Slightly larger than usual geometry for a Sakai gyuto but still following in that style. Ebony and horn handle made by Taihei are a nice compliment.
