Hirokuni Shirogami1 Santoku Knife with a 180mm blade.

Yukihiro Sakai is a young talented blacksmith who is not using pre-laminated steel, he is doing that himself. Shirogami1 is the favorite steel for traditional carbon steel knives. The steel is reactive and develops a patina on the exposed butting edge. The cladding is done with some soft iron and it comes with a kurochi finish.

This is quite a long Santoku, almost like a wide Gyuto.

The oval handle is made from cherry wood with a plastic ferrule.
