Are you a fan of the rustic blacksmith finishes and some hammer marks on a traditional blade? Look no further than Tosa, Japan. They are pumping out some of the best value knives you can get, from some very talented young smiths. Murato Boho works with Blue #1 which has a high carbon content and great edge retention.
The ko - hocho is a versatile knife, that I enjoy over a petty because of the extra height.
