Yu Kurosaki apprenticed with Hiroshi Kato one of the greatest blacksmiths of recent decades. Kato-san taught him well since he received his designation as a master blacksmith by the Echizen Blacksmith Foundation only 17 years after he started blacksmithing in Kanehiro-Uchi-Hamono in 2002. Kurosaki-san claims he was not not a natural blacksmith, he thought several times to stop his apprenticeship. After selling his first knife to an extremely satisfied customer, his confidence grew exponentially. Since that day his desire to make blades for cooks has exploded!
Its knives represent the future of forging in Japan as it focuses on traditional technique while utilizing innovative and progressive designs and finishes that have caught the attention of many chefs around the world.
I am extremely happy to introduce this range of knives right here at Stay Sharp in Montreal.
I strongly believe that the technique and the hundreds of years of expertise that the Japanese have in the art of forging are unmatched! However in Quebec we have a definite talent for cabinet making, as confirmed by these magnificent handles personalized by Martin Tremblay.
