He began making knives about 10 years ago and developed a forge-welding technique so everything in house is hand laminated. This series is forged from Aogami #1 (Blue #1) hand laminated in soft iron. The bevels are kasumi finished on a progression of Japanese whetstones, this process refines geometry and also allows for easier maintenance. Comes fitted with a octagonal rosewood handle.
