Yu Kurosaki is a talented young blacksmith working out of Takefu, Japan. He is known for forging exceptional knives with excellent fit and finish in a variety of steels and finishes. 

This line is forged out of Aogami Super, which is well known for its outstanding edge retention and toughness. Kurosaki-san hammers each of these knives with a unique 'shizuku' or teardrop pattern and finishes with a beautiful octagonal rosewood handle. This knife is stainless clad and requires little or no maintenance.
