Description

This Aogami Super Tank is a collaboration between renowned craftsman Shibata-san and blacksmith Ikeda-san. Forged out of Aogami Super blue steel, which is known for its excellent edge retention and ability to get incredibly sharp, each knife is hand sharpened by Shibata-san. The blade's shape is a unique cross between a Chinese Cleaver and the fit and finish on the knife is of the same high caliber as the SG2 Kotetsu knives and these knives are stainless clad with textured sides to allow for better food release. These special edition knives are produced in limited quantities.
