We're excited to have these knives in made by Makoto Kurosaki, Yu Kurosaki's older brother! While Makoto has his very own shop separate from Yu's, his knives still share a lot of similarities to Yu's. 

While these knives still have a great grind and geometry to them, they are slightly more robust than Yu's knives on the stock making them slightly less delicate. The R2 (SG2) core steel is one of our favourites at the shop for its great edge retention and surprising ease of sharpening for such a tough stainless. It also has a very fine and consistent grain structure as it is a powdered steel so it will benefit from being taken to a much higher grit stone than a more traditional stainless steel will. The fit and finish on these knives is also of a very high level with a perfectly smooth transition between the handle and ferrule, the joint between the tang and handle, and the rounding and polishing on the spine and choil. 

This Kiritsuke comes to us from Kurosaki-san in less than ideal circumstances. A chef in Japan asked Kurosaki-san to custom make this knife for him to his exact specifications. Unfortunately the Chef lost his job due to the pandemic and wasn't able to purchase the knife when it was finished. We are very happy to offer this knife to our customers as it's the only Kiritsuke we have ever seen from Kurosaki-san.

Knife Care (Stainless Steel)

  • Although this knife is made from stainless steel we do still encourage our customers to keep their knives as dry and clean as possible.
  • NO DISHWASHER - the high heat will ruin the wooden handle.
  • Wash and dry by hand using regular dish soap and warm water using a none abrasive sponge or cloth.
  • Ensure the knife is dry before being put away for storage and ensure the edge of the knife is protected to avoid any unnecessary dulling.
  • Avoid Bones, Frozen foods, nuts and hard candies or anything other than fruits, vegetables and proteins.
