Yoshida Hamono Aogami Kurochi Paring Knife knife with a 105mm blade.
Aogami (blue paper steel) is a traditional carbon steel widely used in Japanese knives. The steel has a hardness of 61-62hrc and is not stainless. Aogami keeps a great edge and is not too difficult to sharpen. Yoshida Hamono in the Saga prefecture in Kyushu is a family business with a long tradition in forging steel products.
The knives out of this Aogami range present a great value and are ideal for people trying to use hand forged carbon steel knives without spending too much money. The kurochi finish helps to protect the blade and gives a nice rustic touch.
The knife comes with a nice oval shape cherry wood handle.
