Hand made in Sakai, stainless clad aogami 1 forged by dentoukougeishi master smith Kenji Togashi and expertly ground by his son. Stainless clad aogami 1 is a less common combination as it is more challenging to work but it offers a great combination of the aogami 1 carbon steel's fine edge formation and long edge life 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. Macasser ebony and light colored horn handle are a nice compliment.
