Makoto Kurosaki is Yu Kurosaki's older brother, based in Takefu, Echizen, where he works as the main sharpener in the forge of the famous Kato-san. His new Ryusei line was created in collaboration with local blacksmith masters, whose blades he then grinds and sharpens to perfection.

Gyuto is a Japanese version of traditional European chef knives. The length of 210mm (8.3") is optimal for versatile work as well as cutting larger pieces of meat. Due to its length, it is recommended for experienced chefs and all those who are accustomed to longer knives. The blade is extremely thin at the spine and its edge laser-sharp. The blade features a delicate kasumi finish and a hand-engraved kanji signature. 

The traditional Japanese (Wa) handle is made of maple and finished off with a red Pakka ferrule. Due to its symmetric octagonal shape, it fits comfortably in the right as well as the left palm. 

The core of this knife is stainless VG-7 steel, which is at the very top of quality Japanese steels. The knife is hardened to around 61,5+ HRC, meaning that it will retain super-fine sharpness for a long time. 

Makoto Kurosaki is Yu Kurosaki's older brother, stationed at Takefu knife Village in Echizen. He and his brother spent their internships under the tutelage of Hiroshi Kato and the other masters of the Takefu Cooperative, meaning they had the great privilege of learning from the legends of contemporary Japanese blacksmithing. The result of the knowledge gained can be seen in all of their finished products. Makoto is a cutting edge sharpener and knife designer. He began his blacksmithing career following in the footsteps of his brother into the world of knife forging but decided to create his own path by diverting into knife sharpening. He developed his own brand recently - based on collaboration with local blacksmiths (including his brother) who forge blades of his design, which he then grinds and sharpens.

    ☝️ Japanese kitchen knives in our store are handmade from natural materials. Slight variations in color, texture, weight and other dimensions are possible. We try to give a good photographic representation of our products, however computer screen resolution and colors do vary, so products might not look exactly as they are seen on screen.

    Blade wear depends on the quality of steel, usage and maintenance of the blade. Japanese knives are made of high-quality steels. Follow these tips to keep your Japanese knife in top-notch shape:

    ✔ Use a wooden, plastic or rubber cutting board.
    ✔ After use, wash the knives and wipe them dry.
    ✔ Use a magnetic rack, knife blocks, or use protective knife sheath (saya).
    ✔ A good cutting technique is your best bet to prolong sharpness.
    ✔ Use sharpening stones to sharpen the knife.

    ❗️Don’t leave the knife in the sink. Wash it by hand.
    ❗️Don’t wash the knife in the dishwasher.
    ❗️Don’t use the knife on glass, ceramics, marble or steel surfaces.
    ❗️Don’t scrape the food off the cutting board with the edge of the blade. Use the spine of the knife instead.
    ❗️Knife is a tool intended for specific use - cutting food. It is not a can opener, screwdriver, trowel, wire cutter, hammer etc.
