(Konosuke X Hinoura)
This variant is currently sold out
Here is a new line and design by Konosuke Japan in collaboration with blacksmith Mutsumi Hinoura.
The blade is made with white #2 steel and a stainless clad, which offers easy maintenance with a great edge retention and sharpness.
The rockwell hardness is made especially for this line to be 65 hrc.
The handle is of a hanmaru shape, simliar in shape to an octagonal handle but the edge side of the handle is rounded.
This handle/saya set is made with burned chestnut wood. The saya has the most stunning features of a saya we have ever come across. A magnet pulls the blade in towards the spine, and a piece of wood is detailed to keep the knife from slipping out.
*240mm Gyutos are on a 5% discount because they arrived with cosmetic scratches on the blade road. Please let us know if you require photos of these!
