Zakuri 240mm Blue #1 Kurouchi Wa-Gyuto (Ebony Handle)

  • This Zakuri 240mm Blue #1 Kurouchi Wa-Gyuto is a special order knife with an ebony handle (horn color may vary). The Blue #1 edge takes a very sharp edge and holds it for quite some time. Blue #1 is, in my opinion, the best balance of sharpness and edge holding in a high carbon steel today. This knife is not stainless will patina with use. If not cared for properly, it may rust. However, the kurouchi finish does partially protect the blade from rust.
