Gesshin Kagekiyo 195mm White #2 Deba

  • This is a new part of our Gesshin Kagekiyo series.  Along the lines of our white #2 Gesshin Kagekiyo series, we thought it might be nice to add some more single bevel options. These knives represent some of the highest levels of craftsmanship and quality we have seen. The blacksmiths, sharpeners, and even lacquer-ware craftsmen are all amazingly skilled, as can clearly be seen by simply looking at them. In fact, all of the craftsmen are certified craftsmen or dentou-kougeishi (a very prestigious honor). These knives have amazing fit and finish, spectacular grinds, and amazing geometry. They are a bit of a step up in quality from more basic white #2 deba models, and this can be seen in the grind quality and level of fit and finish, but they still are on the more tough, durable, and easy to sharpen side of things. Unlike our higher-end Gesshin Kagekiyo lines, these lacquer handles are far more simple, and the saya that come with these are normal saya instead of lacquered saya.  The steels are also a bit more forgiving and easier to work with.
