Zakuri Special Order 240mm Aogami Super Kurouchi Wa-Gyuto

This Zakuri 240mm Aogami Super Kurouchi Wa-Gyutois a special order knife with an ebony handle and blonde buffalo horn. The Aogami Super edge takes a very sharp edge and holds it for quite some time. Aogami Super is, in my opinion, the best balance of sharpness and edge holding in a high carbon steel today. This knife is not stainless will patina with use. If not cared for properly, it may rust. However, the kurouchi finish does partially protect the blade from rust.
