Tsukasa 240mm White Steel Unryu Kurouchi Damascus Wa-Gyuto

  • Tsukasa 240mm White Steel Enryu Kurouchi Damascus Wa-Gyuto with Semi-Octagon Pagoda Tree Wood Handle (Buffalo Horn Ferule and End-cap) and Ho Wood Saya 

    Emryu refers to the style of the jigane, which is hand-forged and then twisted. This creates a seamless damascus pattern on all three dimensions of the knife.  Our wa-gyutos from the Tsukasa brand are made in the warikomi-style, using Enryu damascus.  In a time when a lot of knife makers use pre-made sheets of damascus, Hinoura-san values hand-forging, whiche he believes allows for greater control over the quality and creative process.

    The knives are excellent examples of Hinoura-san's work as can be seen from the amazing fit and finish, awesome profile, great grind, and very nice heat treatment of the steel.
