BLENHEIM FORGE AOGAMI SUPER KUROUCHI SANMAI CHEF'S KNIFE 210mm
Blenhiem Forge is a small operation making custom made knives here in London and have developed their own style to the manufacturing and design which has earned them great acclaim over the past few years, their operation has increased dramatically since they started out on their knife making journey to the point where they now have a second site which houses multiple power hammers and an industrial rolling mill. This series is somewhat inspired by traditional kurouchi knives but the blades have been ground symmetrically, the octagonal bog oak handle is oversized with a slightly rounded ferrule with a nickel spacer, the choil and spine have been carefully rounded so these blades are comfortable to hold and are well finished. This series is comprised of a core of Aogami Super giving them fantastic edge retention, this is sandwiched between layers of pure nickel which are encased in stainless cladding so they are easy to maintain and pleasant to sharpen. This grind of this series is different to the standard line and makes them much easier to thin/sharpen wide bevel style.
