This is a Kurouchi iron clad white No 1 blade with a walnut handle. It is hand forged from the blacksmith Tadayoshi Kajiwara-San. Grind is from Abe-San, formally the lead sharpener for Yoshimi Kato. The heat treatment is excellent, coming in at 63-64 HRC. White Steel No 1 is easily sharpened and takes on a screaming edge.

As this is an all reactive knife, care must be taken to avoid rust. Please clean immediately after use and wipe down with a cloth.

Use & Care

  • Do not attempt to cut, hit or chop frozen products or bones. The blade can chip or break with improper use. 
  • Hand wash with warm water and towel dry. Never put the knife in a dishwasher, nor soak it. Ever!
  • Use a sharpening stone to maintain the sharpness of the blade. 
  • Do not use on hard melons or items that may torque the blade.
