Collection: Yoshihiro Yauji


Yoshihiro Yauji is a talented young blacksmith working out of Takefu Knife Village in Echizen, Japan. Echizen is located in Fukui prefecture, and has been a hub for sword and tool making for centuries.

.

After spending many years working under master blacksmith Hideo Kitaoka, Yauji-san's skills are refined and his blades have beautiful fit and finish. His work with Aogami #2 steel is top of the class which shows in the ease of sharpening and ductility of these knives. His damascus cladding is very striking, and coupled with a western Ironwood handle, these knives will leave you drooling. 

.

This line of knives are single bevel, and clad with soft iron. Please wipe this knife dry immediately after use, and only sharpen this knife with high quality water stones.
