OGATA-SAKU KUROUCHI MULTI LAYERES SUMINAGASHI PETTY KNIFE 135mm
The KUROUCHI SUMINAGASHI knife range brings with it a unique aesthetic. During the forging process, materials are exposed to searing heats creating a black , oxide film. This film is usually polished, resulting in the silver we have come to know. However this film provides a sought-after quality, it makes the carbon steel less susceptible to rust. This rough-look of the black steel gives a raw, edgy feel to the knife, which is beautifully finished with a smooth meandering border between the unpolished black steel and the polished, ultra-sharp edge. OGATA San is one of the youngest blacksmiths in the Takefu Knife “Village”, in Fukui prefecture. The Takefu knife “village” is one single building hoeing eleven separate blacksmith companies
