Forged by blacksmith Tadayoshi Kajiwara from shirogami # 1 carbon steel, this steel is arguably one of the easiest and purest steels on the market. After forging these knives Kajiwara-san sends these blades to a young sharpener named Abe-San. He was previously the main sharpener of Yoshimi Kato-san which positions him as one of the most talented sharpeners in his region. His double bevel sharpening is impeccable and he decided to open his own shop near Takefu.


These knives represent a boon for those who have a marked interest in oxidizable steels and the traditional design of Japanese kitchen knives.
