Yu Kurosaki

Well known for his unique blade designs Yu Kurosaki is one of the youngest and most talented blacksmiths in Japan. Not only does Kurosaki tempt us with his beautiful blade designs, but their ability to perform keeps us coming back. High quality materials and age old forging techniques combine to create a knife with an extremely sharp edge that will hold up throughout use.

Raijin, the Japanese god of thunder is the inspiration Kurosaki-san used for the hand hammered pattern on these blades; evoking a "crack!" of lightning. Folds of Damascus steel play in contrast with that unique texture creating a stunning look. With a core of high quality Cobalt Special Steel that is able to take and hold an extremely sharp edge, this line of knives is one you'll want to be sure to add to your collection.
