Kurokumo (黑雲) by Kamo
I am super glad to offer you the Shinko Kurokumo by Master Shiro Kamo. The concept of the Kurokumo is very similar to my Syousin Chiku Migaki line: people really like a standard line, so I make up a even better custom line based on it.
In this case of Shinko Kurokumo, Shinko (辰光) is the K&S in house brand and the Kurokumo (黑雲, black cloud) represents the acid etched damascus pattern. The knife itself is idential to the Syousin Suminagashi namely same profile, same grind and the same core-steel (R2).
Extra compared to the standard Syousin Suminagashi
- Acid etch the blade to give it a more pronounced damacus pattern,
- Rounded choil and spine
- K&S custom handle: ebony single spacer with blonde / marble ferrule
