Ginrei 150mm 52100 Kurouchi Wa-Petty (Magnolia Wood)

  • Ginrei knives forged, heat treated, ground, and sharpened all by hand in a very small workshop.  These knives are made out of solid 52100 steel and feature a kurouchi finish.  52100 is a ball bearing steel well known for its extremely fine grain structure, good edge retention, and good toughness.  It is a carbon steel, and thus needs to be cared for as such.  We have found these knives to be very easy to sharpen, great at edge taking, and all around very enjoyable to use.  They are ground pretty thin behind the edge, and thus move through dense food items really well.  However, being that they are not quite as thin at the spine, they also have pretty good food release.

    The knife bags that come the Ginrei may vary in color and design from the picture.
