Gesshin Ajikataya 240mm White #2 Kurouchi Wa-Gyuto

  • Tsukasa Hinoura is the third generation of blacksmith carrying on "Ajikataya" (Îï____α†), working with his son.  Hinoura-san is well know for the quality of his work... especially his "Tsukasa" line.  We brought in this line so that more people could try Hinoura-san's work.  Moreover, whenever we get a chance, we do our best to support young craftsmen, such as his son (who is about the same age as Sara and I).


    Hinoura-san's heat treatemnt is top notch, and his style reflects a lot of the regional attribultes.  These knives have an exceptional distal taper, and wonderful wide bevel, which assists in faciliating easier thinning and sharpening.
