Kei Kobayashi SG2 / R2 Damascus 240mm Gyuto with No Handle

Kei Kobayashi is celebrated for his flawless fit and finish, and meticulous laser grinds. His creations are in high demand - if they are in stock, they won't be for long.

Here at Tokushu, we carry knives from blacksmiths who already had a stellar reputation before they started forging their own kitchen knives. One such example is Kei Kobayashi. Before making his own kitchen knives, he was a highly skilled sharpener and polisher from Seki city, having worked with some of the region's top blacksmiths.

Now, Kobayashi-san controls his own lines of knives made from a premium powdered stainless steel known as SG2 or R2. His knives are incredibly thin, and their simplistic Damascus pattern pairs well with any stock or custom handle. Choose yours here!

Excellent knife

This is by far the best knife I’ve ever seen, let alone owned. It’s razor sharp and holding that edge well so far, lightweight, and has care and attention to the little things - the spine and choil are rounded for comfort. And can’t forget the fact that it’s gorgeous!
Tokushu is great, too - I had them install their shattered carbon wa handle and do the initial sharpening. Shipping was fast and quality is excellent.
