Brand : Muneishi
Black Santoku knife made by Mr. Hirotaka Muneishi. He was born into a family of blacksmiths and is now certified as a national traditional craftsman by the Japanese government.
This knife is made using traditional methods that have been used since the samurai era, and the blade retains the natural black color that results from the forging process. It’s beautifully finished and you can feel the high skill of the craftsman.
Material : Aogami#2 steel
Many Japanese forged knife craftsmen traditionally prefer SHirogami#2 steel or Aogami#2 steel. Because it is suitable for forged handmade knives. The quality of the blade varies depending on the skill of the craftsman, but in general Aogami#2 steel is a higher grade than Shirogami#2. Since it is carbon steel (not stainless steel), it easily rusts. So please wash and dry after use.
Type of knife : Santoku
