Tetsujin 240mm Blue #2 Kiritsuke Wa-Gyuto - Tatsutogi

  • The Tetsujin series is a collaboration between Myojin-san and Tomura-san. For some years now, Myojin-san has been one of the craftsmen involved with our Gesshin Kagekiyo knives.  Together with his workshop partner and longtime friend, they began the Tetsujin series.  These kiritsuke-shaped wa-gyuto are made from Blue #2 steel with soft iron cladding.  The tatsutogi grind/finish is a subtle convex grind from spine to edge, and tends to be thinner in the mid-section than his knives with shinogi lines and wide bevels.  The Tetsujin knives also feature a bit more blade height than many similar sakai-made wa-gyuto.  These guys have been making quite a name for themselves with high-performing and extremely well-made knives.  The handles are made from Jindai Elm and the knives come with magnolia sayas.
