Zakuri 210mm Blue #1 Kurouchi Wa-Gyuto (Ebony Handle)

  • This Zakuri 210mm Blue #1 Wa-Gyuto is a special order knife with an ebony octagon handle (horn color may vary). The Blue #1 edge takes a very sharp edge and holds it for quite some time. Blue #1 is designed for excellent edge retention, and though it doesn't get as sharp as white #2, take a very nice edge still. This knife is not stainless will patina with use. If not cared for properly, it may rust.

    Please note that as water buffalo horn is a natural material, the color of the horn may vary. The picture shows a blonde horn, but the ferrule may be black, brown, or marble, depending on our inventory at the time.
