Yu Kurosaki Senko Gyuto 180mm with turquoise handle Purchase options

An incredible limited edition gyuto from master blacksmith Kurosaki san. 

Crafted with a beautiful full tang design using SG2 core steel and finished with a sensational Western shaped turquoise handle, this is a real collectors knife and very difficult to find due to the limited numbers made. 

If you're looking for a statement piece that pairs with the incredible fit and finish of the Senko range then look no further.

First Impressions

Excellent sharpness right out of the box as you'd expect from Kurosaki and the SG2 core steel retains an edge very well so this knife will perform when you need it.

Beauty

Just look at it! It's stunning. 

Every blade is unique, the stainless cladding has a wonderful variety of hammer finished markings that resemble a collection of diamonds embedded along the cladding.

In Hand

This is a classic Japanese knife with a half tang and lightweight octagonal walnut wa handle so it's typically nimble and comfortable in use. 

Durability

The stainless SG2 steel core clad in stainless is both sharp and durable and edge retention will be excellent. 

Ease of Care

The Senko is easy to look after, both core and cladding steel are stainless so our normal storage and care instructions apply but this is a knife that's going to perform and look great for many years.

Our Verdict

You're getting a lot of knife for your money. Kurosaki san has once again created something that marries performance, durability and a beautiful design that is recognisably his own and this is a knife you'll be reaching for time and again for many years.
