Mainly used as an Usuba and a Yanagiba, its versatility makes it suitable for other uses. It is made with a sloping cut from its back towards its tip, pointed like a Bunka. It is recommended for chopping and cutting up ingredients.

Blue (Aogami) #2 (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is made by adding Chromium and Tungsten / Wolfram to White Steel #2. This results in increased toughness and the production of hard carbide molecules, which improve edge retention. Many knife users have noted that while Blue Steel #2 is very similar to White Steel #2 in terms of edge sharpness, it has slightly superior edge retention.

Black-finish is a state in which the surface that has been blackened by quenching is sharpened only with the blade, leaving the black side unintentionally on the sides (Mine and Hira) other than the blade.

There is no elegance like a polished finish, but it has a taste of bumps and ruggedness. It also has the advantage of less rust than a polished finish.



Knife Care:

  • After using the knife, wash it well with detergent, etc., and then wipe off the water well (especially on the blade).
  • Do not hit or twist the cutting edge and cut frozen foods.
  • Use a sharpening stone to maintain the sharpness of the blade.
