BLACKSMITH INTRO -
The Ohishi Blue Steel range of knives are expertly crafted under the Akifusa brand. Ohishi is also the name of the village in which the Akifusa business is located, close to Mt. Fuji. The Kurochi has a glossy touch, and the hand hammered (Tsuchime) finish is contrasted with the stainless steel cladding. These Nakiri feature a western handle design, meaning a slightly more contoured handle and a little extra weight and balance, although the blade is very thin behind the edge.
|Blade Material:||Blue Super Steel w/Stainless Kurouchi Tsuchime Clad|
