152,91 €

Gyuto knife with a blade that measures 240 mm

Shiro Kamo was the first blacksmiths that we introduced, it was back in 2008. Today his knives are still one of the most popular knives we sell and its easy to understand why. The looks and performance is top notch while the price is still low. Kamo san lives and works in Takefu and he is one of the founding members of TKV, Takefu Knife Village, a large factory that twenty or so blacksmith share. They do so for the exchange of ideas and knowledge, to lend a helping hand or simply for the good company of others.

This knife is hot forged by hand in aogami#2 carbon steel, heat treated to 63-64 HRC. The blades are tapered and the finish is black kurouchi. The grind is thin, very thin, and they cut like lasers. A really good pick up that we truly recommend.

We call this knife kuroi ryuu (黒い竜) which means Black Dragon.

Weight: 182 gr
Thickness mid spine: 1,7 mm
Blade height heel: 53,2 mm
Edge length: 240 mm
Steel: Aogami #2

Note: Each measurement can vary slightly. Its a hand made product.

Carbon steel is NOT stainless. Be sure to wipe off all moist directly after use to avoid rust.

Disclaimer: Japanese knives have thin edges with high hardness. This makes them much more fragile than traditional european knives. These blades should under no circumstances be subject to twisting, prising or cutting into hard objects. Such handling could easily cause damage to the edge, something that is not valid grounds for a warranty claim.
