Shojiro Yasugi Steel Kurouchi (Bamboo Handle)

main Shojiro Yasugi Steel Kurouchi (Bamboo Handle)

Shojiro's all-purpose kitchen knives are unique in shape, with blades made by the traditional Japanese "Sohi-zukuri" method and handles made of old-fashioned bamboo. 
"Sohi-zukuri" is an ancient Japanese traditional method of making knives by beating heated iron without using a mold, and no two knives made by this method have the same shape, each of which is unique in the world. The method has been used in Japanese sword production since ancient times, and is in line with the manufacturing technology of Japanese swords. The blade sharpness itself as well as the longevity of the sharpness are the feature of knives made with the Sohi-zukuri.
The Yasugi steel is painstakingly forged by hand in its Sohi-zukuri process to increase its tenacity and strength, and then further beaten to shape the blade.

In addition, the bamboo handle not only creates an ancient Japanese taste, but is further waterproofed to make it extremely durable and resistant to water and dirt, and it fits so well in your hand that you cannot let it go.
