Akira-Saku Blue #2 Funayuki Gyutou 180mm

+

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.

* 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.

Handle material Magnolia (Ho) Wood
Blade length 180mm (7.1")
Thickness at spine 4mm
Thickness at tip 1mm
Hardness (Rockwell scale) 59
Bevel / Edge
Double (50/50)

  • Carbon steel is not stain resistant. Wipe completely dry after use.
  • Handwash in warm water and towel dry
  • Do not cut frozen foods
  • Use a sharpening stone, not a honing steel, to re-sharpen your Japanese chef knives

 

* Chubo is a purveyor of the finest Japanese Chef Knives, kitchenware and barware.
