Akira-Saku Blue #2 Funayuki Gyutou 165mm (6.4")

+

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 an octagonal oak 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 Oak
Blade length 165mm (6.4")
Thickness at spine 3 mm
Thickness at tip 1 mm
Hardness (Rockwell scale) 59
Bevel / Edge
Double (50/50)

  • Carbon steel is not stain resistant. Wipe completely dry after use.
  • Hand wash 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
