DESCRIPTION

Akifusa Santoku (All purpose Knife) 170mm, Super Blue Steel, Suminagashi

This beautiful piece of hand made work is from the famous knife village of Takefu, Echizen.
(Same knife village as Hideo Kitaoka and Takeshi Saji etc).
It is made by one of Japan's upcoming blacksmiths Yamamotouchi-Hamono.

Akifusa only deal with high quality knife makers.
Tadafusa/Ohishi, Hideo Kitaoka and Mutsumi Hinoura to list a few.

A Super Blue Steel core knife with a Suminagashi (Floating Ink) and Kuro (Black) finish.

Suminagashi Translates to floating ink and refers to the pattern on the cladding.


Leigh's 2 cents: Beautiful knives somewhere between a laser and workhorse.
Everything you would except from a high quality, hand made piece of work.
Great edge geometry and cutting power paired with a stand out Suminagashi cladding.
This is a full carbon steel knife. (non- stainless steel)
It will patina and take on its own unique look after a bit of use.
Giving the knife a old rustic look within a few short months.

*The core steel and cladding of this knife is subject to corrosion, so be sure to follow knife care instructions to help avoid surface rust.
Be careful not to scratch off the black cladding. Once it has gone you can't get it back!
