Muneishi Kuroichi Santoku, 180 mm

This Santoku knife has a core of Japanese Aogami # 2 carbon steel with 2 softer types of stainless steel as a protective layer (sanmai) on the outside. This double-sided sharpened knife has a black (Kurochi) protective layer. Completely hand-forged by the master blacksmith Kosuke Muneishi-san, this knife is one of a kind. The blade is very thin and manually sharpened and has no thickening, which makes sharpening very easy.

Muneishi-hamono was founded in 1955, Mr. Hirotaka Muneishi, the second generation blacksmith, manufactures forest knives such as axes and machetes, and Mr. Kosuke Muneishi, the third generation blacksmith, forges kitchen knives. Kosuke Muneishi carries out all the steps himself: tempering, forging, hammering and sharpening knives.
