Knife Information 

Yu Kurosaki is now one of the most well-known blacksmiths in Japan. He experienced a rapid rise to fame through his beautiful knife aesthetics, his thin grinds, and use of exotic steels like SG2, HAP40, and stainless-clad Blue Super. The Fujin was among one of the first lines of his that contributed to this fame. The striking Tsuchime finish is now instantly recognizable and is truly a piece to be experienced first-hand. 

Best paired with a wooden saya and a 1000/6000 whetstone

Steel Breakdown

SG2 is a powder stainless steel made by The Takefu Special Steel Company in Takefu, Japan. It is, in our eyes, the ultimate combination of edge retention, stainless properties, and ease of sharpening. Having more carbon than the Carbon Steels like White and Blue, yet more stainless elements than VG10, knives using this steel are the best of both worlds without the downsides.

Knives with an SG2 core are becoming more prevalent in Japan due to these reasons. Their overall cost may be higher, but is well justified in our opinion.
