The "Flying Bird" series is made using super hard Aogami Super steel (can rust!) with Kurosaki's famous hammered finish, heat treated to around HRC 62 to increase thoughness. The most special feature of the Flying Bird is the black micarata scales are installed with a special type of screw that it is not only secure, it is very easy to replace the scale with other types you want. While the cost is increased a little, it enbales you to customize your blade with your personal touch, easily.

Yu Kurosaki san not only makes some of the best performing kitchen knives, he also makes great outdoor knives. His hunters are not only super practical, great looking but also demonstrates some of the best traditional forging skills from Japan. All the Kurosaki outdoor knives and hand forged and finished by Kurosaki-san himself. Knives and Stones is proud to distribute his outdoor knives.
