      We are so excited to offer our new line of knives. Stainless clad Blue #2 is an excellent combination of low maintenance knife with a high performance traditional carbon steel. This is a perfect starter knife. A similar knife by Tadafusa was actually one of my first Japanese knives. It is a very easy shape and steel to sharpen, and years ago, I honed my skills on this exact knife. The only difference is the upgraded handcrafted octagonal handle made of Japanese red birch, with a wedge handle.

      Blue #2 is one of my favorite steels, and if you are learning to sharpen, this is a great knife for that purpose alone, as well as a very competent cutter. 

        Cladding is stainless, however so you should dry the edge because the edge is reactive.  

       These all feature our "Tokushu Knife" Kanji, and high quality handles made by local craftsman in Sanjo, Japan. The handles are some of the best quality I have seen in this style.
