History and curiosity
Yu Kurosaki Japanese knives are highly appreciated by lovers of handcrafted knives. Kurosaki-san has a workshop in the heart of the Takefu Knife Village, a mecca for artisanal knife production. Indeed, the area brings together a large number of artisan blacksmiths whose methods derive directly from ancestral know-how. Being gathered in the same place allows them to share their techniques, while preserving the Japanese heritage, which is also recognized internationally.
This craftsman has been working since the 2000s, and he was a student of renowned master blacksmiths. He is particularly recognized for the original work he does on his blades, whose hammerings are all more beautiful than the other. Kurosaki-san is the yellowest blacksmith to have been certified as a master blacksmith by the Japanese authorities.
This 16.5 cm santoku is part of the Senko series with a San Maï structure. Its means that it is built from 3 layers of steel and the San Maï structure is typically Japanese.
