Kyohei Aogami Gyuto,
This Japanese chef's knife has a core of Japanese Aogami #2 "Blue paper" non-stainless carbon steel with a very nice kuroichi protective layer. The blade is sharpened on both sides. Completely hand-forged by the young master blacksmith Kyohei Shindo from Tosa, this knife is one of a kind. The blade is very thin and manually sharpened and has no thickenings, which makes sharpening very easy.
