Sakai Takayuki Aogami Super Kurouchi

This beautiful line of knives is hand forged in the san mai method with a core of Aogami Super steel and clad in stainless steel. The knives are then hammered and left unpolished to create the rustic 'kurouchi' look on the blade.  Aogami Super steel is known for its excellent edge retention and toughness while still being easy to resharpen. The hammered kurouchi finish on the blade will also prevent sticking and aid with food release.
The knives are fitted with two tone magnolia octagonal handles and hand sharpened for excellent out of the box sharpness.

Blade length 150 mm (5.9")
Thickness at spine 1.9mm
Thickness at tip 0.9 mm
Hardness (Rockwell scale) 62
Bevel / Edge Double (50/50)
Weight 130 grams
  • 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
