Kawamura Kusabi Kurouchi Santoku 165mm American Cherry Wood Handle
Hand forged in Sanjo, Nigata prefecture by a third generation bladesmith, he produces knives entirely by hand and due to his limited production prefers to remain anonymous. He works alone in his family’s shop producing an extremely limited quantity of knives entirely by hand and prefers to use the traditional carbon steels produced by the Yasugi steel mill. This series consists of a traditional San-Mai construction with a Kurouchi finish, the cladding is stainless for ease of maintenance and the core is Shirogami 2 chosen for its super fine grain and ease of sharpening. These blades have quite a large amount of depth and a fine edge geometry making them excellent cutters. The Hira (flat) of the knife has an unusual textured finish which aids in food release.
