      Mainly used as an Usuba and a Yanagiba, its versatility makes it suitable for other uses. It is made with a sloping cut from its back towards its tip, pointed like a Bunka. It is recommended for chopping and cutting up ingredients.

      Blue (Aogami) #2 (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is made by adding Chromium and Tungsten / Wolfram to White Steel #2. This results in increased toughness and the production of hard carbide molecules, which improve edge retention. Many knife users have noted that while Blue Steel #2 is very similar to White Steel #2 in terms of edge sharpness, it has slightly superior edge retention.

    Amazing knife!

    Amazing hand forged knife. Steel quality is amazing. It's a gem for that price. Only disappointment was "free delivery" statement, actually buyer needs to pay for the delivery. Needed to sharpen the blade to be able to cut napkins. Edge retention is good, real authentic look, best choice for a person looking for ultimate functionality and authenticity. Thanks!
