Kajiwara Kurouchi | 240mm Sujihiki Knife (Aogami)
Hand-crafted in Tosa Japan, Kajiwara Kurouchi are a high performance carbon steel knife with a rustic aesthetic. The grind is thicker than other knives of this ilk, making it better at resisting chips and more suitable for harder work in the kitchen. Aogami (Blue) steel rusts slower than it's White equivalent, making it a sound starting knife into the world of carbon steel.
The fit and finish of these knives is a little lower than others but the quenching and performance more than makes up for it.
