Product Description & Reviews
Our handmade Yoshihiro Mizu Yaki Blue High Carbon Steel Black Forged Kiritsuke Japanese Multipurpose Chef Knife are at the top of its class in performance. Mizu Yaki is a meticulous process of pure water quenching that draws out the hardness of refined steel while infusing enough resiliency to perform consistently in the most exacting of conditions.
Exemplifying the most intricate techniques of forging, layering, and hammering, this black forged knife, or Kurouchi in Japanese, is a traditional method of crafting high carbon knives. This unique style of forging offers an unpolished rustic finish. With a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 62-63, the inner core of Blue High Carbon Steel #2 is prized for its high edge retention.
Our Mizu Yaki Black forged Kurouchi knives are also complimented with a traditional Japanese style handcrafted Shitan wooden handle affixed with a Rosewood bolster, and a protective wooden sheath called a Saya is included, which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use. The Kiritsuke is one of the most versatile and essential of all knives a cook can have. It is a cross between a chef's knife and a vegetable knife and is perfect for dicing, slicing, and chopping fresh produce from a farmers market to carving a roast chicken straight from the oven.
Although traditional Japanese carbon steel knives are not stainless, with proper care they can provide years of enjoyment. Keeping dry in between usage, and applying Tsubaki Oil(as included) before storage will keep your knife in tip top shape. Japanese knives should always be sharpened and honed on premium quality Japanese water stones.
