Tetsujin 240mm Blue #2 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. This wa-gyuto is made from Blue #2 steel with soft iron cladding and a tatsutogi, or lengthwise-sharpened, finish. 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 handle is made from walnut and the knife come with magnolia saya.
