Hatsukokoro Komorebi Blue #2 Kasumi Gyuto 210mm Ebony Handle


Another great series from the Hatsukokoro brand. Komorebi refers to the effect of the sunlight streaming through the leaves. What a perfect way to describe the subtle misty finish on these knives, contrasted by the brightly polished core steel comprised of many knife aficionado’s favourite carbon steel,  Blue #2.

In addition to the beautiful surface aesthetics, the Komorebi Kasumi series features a much taller heel height measurement than most blades in the same blade length, providing extra knuckle clearance and ease of chopping tall produce in your kitchen. Furthermore, the polished and eased spine as well as the choil provide extra comfort during usage, and the wide bevel grind is consistent without too much rippling commonly seen in lower price point wide bevel blades that didn’t receive the right gentle touch. The edge is quite thin, thus touching up and re-sharpening is a breeze along with excellent cutting performance.

We recommend these blades to discerned knife users that are comfortable with the edge touch up on waterstones, and looking for an extra performance with taller heel heights. A big plus if you already have a rust prevention routine or prepare to learn, as this is a fully reactive carbon steel blade.

Note: When the kasumi finish begins to fade over time with use, simply use Tosho’s In-House Kasumi Powder to restore its original beauty.
