Collection: Yu Kurosaki Fujin VG10

Yu Kurosaki began his blacksmithing career in 2002 and has already been awarded the title of master craftsman. In fact, he is the youngest blacksmith working at Takefu Knife Village to earn that recognition. His knives are true works of art, and we couldn't be any more excited to share them with you. 
This line of knives is named after Fujin, the god of wind. Kurosaki-san is famous for his  hammer strikes, creating the unique tsuchime finish you'll see on his knives. This finish not only looks amazing, it helps with reducing the amount of food that gets stuck to the blade face.
At the core of these knives is VG10. VG10 was designed for making knives, it is a stainless steel with a high carbon content. The metalurgy breaks down something like this: 1% Carbon, 15% chromium, 1% Molybdenum, 0.2% Vanadium, 1.5% Cobalt, 0.5% Manganese. VG10 is a super versatile steel, that in the right knife makers hands can produce exquisite pieces even for the most discerning knife collectors.
We have chosen to fix all knives in this line with a walnut  octagonal handle. This handle shape is excellent for a non-slip grip, and is good for both righty's and lefty's.
