Yu Kurosaki

Kurosaki-san started as a blacksmith at a very young age, starting working at Takefu knife village at the age of 17 and apprenticed under Hiroshi Kato and Katsushige Anryu and ended up as the youngest master blacksmith at Takefu knife village.

His knives are renowned world wide for there unique look and amazing performance!

The Shizuku is made from R2 Powdered steel that keeps a super sharp edge for a long time between sharpening. R2 is a high speed powder stainless steel made by Takefu Special steel Co. Ltd. It has great hardness of greater than 63 HR. This steel has great edge retention, high wear resistance and is stainless. The grains are so fine and uniform that hammer forging is not necessary.

Bunka:

Bunka knives are general purpose knives tackling a wide range of common kitchen tasks. Their reverse tanto profile gives the knives a dexterous and delicate tip and a unique and eye-catching aesthetic. These can be used any time a Gyuto or santoku might be called for. Since Banno Bunkas have fairly flat profiles they are most adept at push cutting and chopping rather than rock chopping.

Care Instructions:

  • Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Dishwashers are very bad for all knives.
  • Use a soft cloth to wash the blade. Avoid abrasive dish scrubbers and powders as these can damage the finish of your beautiful knife.
  • Do not cut through bones. You can certainly cut along/beside bones, but do not cut into bones. This can, at worst, chip the blade.
  • Never use this knife to cut frozen food. I’m sure you have a 4×4 somewhere in your kitchen for this job.
  • Never twist or cleave the blade.
  • Always use a wooden or plastic cutting board. Never cut on bamboo, glass, marble, slate, a plate, china, marble, arborite or anything harder than steel.
  • Store knives in a way that the blades will not knock into each other.
  • Never transport knives unprotected.
