Yoshihiro Yauji (Echizen)
Yoshihiri Yauji is a young Japanese blacksmith who has learned the trade in the famous "Takefu Knife Village" near Echizen. After having been apprenticed for a number of years, he has had his own smithy for about 10 years. All knives are completely hand-forged from traditional Japanese steel (Shirogami or Aogami). We are very pleased that we can now offer a number of Yauji-san knives for the first time in Europe. We have chosen the line with the Shirogami steel, this type of steel is very hard and because of its high purity it can also be sharpened very sharp.
The combination between a traditional blade with a Tsuchime (hammered) pattern and a black Kuroichi layer is unique.
