In house Warikomi – Blue 2 with Iron Tscuhime Kurouchi Finish

49 x 242 212g

$250 USD international– ill cover the first $15 shipping
$325 AUD shipped to Australia express post with tracking


$220 USD international– I'll cover the first $15 shipping
$300 AUD shipped to Australia express post with tracking

The protective lacquer has been removed from the blade road and not the Kurouchi Finish.
The Lacquer darkens contrast between the core and cladding shown in online dealer photos. The photos show current condition

Hardly used in a home environment and is close to new condition, it’s not the knife for me. I have touched up once on a 3k

I have put Tung oil on the handle and removed the patina with a Uchi finger stone (its revealed some of the original grind marks @45° to the edge)

Purchased from Cleancut – here is their description
The core steel is aogami# 2 which is a very pure carbon steel that takes a scary sharp edge while it is easy to sharpen. Around the core steel is a layer of blackened iron that has been hammered to a raw texture (kurouchi tsuchime). The handle is made of walnut in an octagonal shape.
Kisuke Manaka is a relatively young blacksmith in the 5th generation, and he forges his blades in the city of Kasukabe in Japan. Manaka-san forges everything from scratch and he even laminates the steel by hand (hon-warikomi). Quality and finish is very important to Manaka and he therefore grinds all the leaves by hand on Japanese natural stones. That's why they get such a beautiful kasumi finish with a clear contrast between core steel and coat (hongasumi).

Congrats - I have the Aogami 2 Nakiri from Kisuke and absolutely love it. Your price was really generous on the Gyuto - hope the new owner enjoys it!
