The KURO (means Black) series is a heavy ironclad knife that feels substantial in the hand while the Walnut handle is smooth and warm.
Blade - White Carbon #2 core with soft black iron cladding gives this line it’s distinctive look. Heavy and solid these are a great workhorse of a knife. The Black oxide coating helps keep the blade from rusting.
The black oxide coating is produced during heat treating, and only the cutting edge is polished, this is called a Kurouchi finish by our knife craftsmen.
Hand engraved with the Kikuichi chrysanthemum logo.
NOTE: Blade may rust if left wet, this is NOT a stainless steel.
Handle - Traditional octagonal wa handle made of Walnut and water buffalo horn ferrule
