Made exclusively for Chubo, the Akira Saku line is completely hand-forged and shaped from Blue Steel #2 by a father and son blacksmith team. Steel is attached to soft iron ore completely by hand using no automation in the process. The line features rustic shapes, in the funayuki style with a thicker blade than many pressed knives. Finished with a traditional D shaped magnolia handle and buffalo horn bolster.
* Dimensions for each knife vary slightly as they are made by hand.
* As the blade shapes are unique, our wooden sayas do not fit these knives.
