Product Description

Blue 1 Steel is one of those really-hard-to-forge steel types, not every bladesmith in Japan can confortably handle Blue 1 steel, let alone forging the Mizu-Honyaki (water quenching) in Blue 1 steel.

Because its so difficult to forge, Blue 1 honyaki knives are usually rare and more expensive than White steel honyaki knives. I always dreamed to one day owning one myself. It is exactly the reason I asked president Aoki (of Aoki Hamono), to get what he think is the best person to make me some of these "personal treats", and without hesitation, he replied "Togashi-san". The result is this beautiful Blue 1 Honyaki 240mm Gyuto. Forged by Kenji Togashi and sharpened by Hirosugu Tosa, both are among the elite group of Dentou Kougeishi. This blade represents the best offerings from Sakai and quite possibly from Japan.

To make this little "treat" a little more special, I also mated it with my favourite handle: the mightly Australian Ringed Gidgee with blonde horn ferrule and end cap, with double silver nickel spacer. The treat does not stop here: included with the package, is a handcrafted exotic hardwood saya made by me here in Sydney.

 

All up, this Blue 1 Mizu-Honyaki 240mm Gyuto package includes:

  • Blue 1 Mizu-Honyaki 240mm Gyuto,
  • Australian Ringed Gidgee with blonde horn ferrule / end cap, and silver nickel spacer,
  • Handcrafted exotic hardwood saya
  • Japanese fukasa pouch,
  • Wooden presentation box
  • Small bottle of camila oil
