The fine Japanese craftsmanship

The Wusaki Yuzo BS2 chef knife 24cm is manufactured in Japan, which is a country known for its ancient expertise in the making of knives. Its blade is handcrafted by the young up-and-coming blacksmith Kousuke Muneishi San, he is the 3rd generation blademaker of his family. The blade is entirely hand-forged according to ancestral methods developed by blacksmiths throughout several generations are still used nowadays. This polyvalent kitchen knife is a clear proof that a nice look can go together with an outstanding cutting performance.

An outstanding Japanese steel

Ideal for performaing all cutting tasks, the blade of this knife is made of Blue Steel n°2. This Japanese Aogami steel is enriched with 1.2% of carbon, which enables the blade to reach a hardness of 62 HRC in the Rockwell scale. Such level of hardness allows the blade to remain sharp for a long time. Furthermore, the blade has a San Maï makeup which means the central core of the blade (the part that becomes the edge) is made with a harder steel, whereas the two outer edges beyond that point are made with a milder, more pliable steel. This 3 layers construction gives the best of both worlds: a long-lasting razor edge quite easy to hone that is protected from corrosion brittleness.

Lightweight handle: work without fatigue

The Wusaki Yuzo WS2 Chef knife 24cm features a handle made of morado wood. This exotic wood displays a very smooth fine grain with black stripes; it has a slightly reddish warm brown color with a random pattern of black veins that makes each piece unique. Its oval shape fits perfectly in any type of hande. The deep red color of the pakkawood bolster stands in beautiful contrast with the black-forged finish blade and the darker wood handle. 

Exceptional cutting pleasure

The knife is clad in two layers of full Kurouchi stainless steel that offers a very rustic look which leaves no one indiferrent.  

The blade is sharpened with a whetstone to ensure the edge is as clean and sharp as possible.

Hand wash the knife after using it and dry it immediately with a clean and dry microfiber cloth. Never soak the wooden handle in the water, even to wash it. Note that this knife is not rust resistant and will therefore superficially discolour.
