You asked and I delivered. The Shinko Kurokumo and Syousin Suminagashi R2 are two very popular lines launched by K&S offering the work from a renowned knife maker: Shiro Kamo of Takefu Village. 

Many of you asked for a carbon variant from Kamo-san and mentioned to me that his Kurouchi Aogami Super (Blue Super, AS) is an exceptional cutter at a great price. So I decided to offer exactly what you after: Shiro Kamo Kurouchi Aogami Super line, comes with K&S octagonal ebony handles. 

Features:

  • Aogami Super (Blue Super) Core
  • Soft iron cladding in KU finish, that offer you ultimate feel of carbon

Shiro Kamo, while little known overseas, is a well regarded knife smith in Japan. He was awarded the prestigious “Dento-kogeshi” (Master of Traditional Crafts) at a very young age (total of about 10 persons are awarded in Echizen area, likes of Takeshi Saji and Katsushige Anryu). He is also the president of the Takefu Knife Village Cooperative (http://www.takefu-knifevillage.com/company/) that is the reason I say while not known by many of us outside, Kamo-san is certainly a highly regarded figure in the kitchen knife industry. His knives have exceptional profile and grind, and the heat treatment of R2 steel is so impressive that you are assured to be getting a damn good knife. I just can’t afford to not offer his work to you :D
