    Gesshin Hide Blue #1 Honyaki Wa-Gyutos

    So they are finally done... the blue #1 honyaki wa-gyutos. Forged by Shiraki-san and sharpened and finished by the craftsmen who make our Gesshin Hide line, they came out even better than i expected. The larger one is 270mm and the shorter one is 240mm. Because chromium is added to blue steel, it is a little deeper hardening than white steel. This means that the hamon does not show up as clearly, but if you catch these just right, its there.

    Shiraki-san is often referred to as one of the best, if not the best, blacksmith in sakai, so these knives are a real treat for us to be able to make. Hope you like them.

    (the 240mm is sold out, but the 270mm is still around)

    I was able to hold both of these knives yesterday while I was at Jon's place and they are magnificent. The person who grabs this knife will be in for a real treat.
