Master Tsutomu Kajiwara is a blacksmith of Echizen, who is known for his work with Blue #2 and iron Damascus cladding, and a Kurouchi finish. This is a rare combo, and when you add the upgraded handle, it is an intriguing workhorse type knife!
This knife has been a joy to use and Zach did an outstanding job sharpening this piece. The weight is on par with my 4" utility knife, but the extra blade make it very useful for large fruits and slab cuts of meat.
