Konosuke Connoisseur Series 黒潮海龍 All-Steel Swedish Special Steel Wa-Gyuto
Handle: Octagonal handle with Black Tide Urushi, abalone shell inlay, and fine gold dust coating.
Saya: Red gold Tsugaru nuri Urushi
A masterpiece by Konosuke, this 黒潮海龍 (Kuroshio Shidoragon) Wa-Gyuto is meticulously crafted from sharp SW Special Swedish Stainless Steel (also available in HD2 Swedish Semi-Stainless Steel series).
Swedish Stainless Steel is highly praised for its ease of sharpening, fine and sharp blade edge, and its rust-resistant and corrosion-resistant properties. The uniquely thin blade edge achieves the highest level of cutting precision, remaining sufficiently tough despite its thinness—a must-have for excellent and professional craftsmen!
In the All-Steel Handcrafted Swedish Special Steel series, the junction between the blade and handle features a hand-carved "Habaki" in the shape of Mount Fuji, showcasing creative and artistic beauty! This particular edition has been treasured by our company for many years, is a rare limited edition, and holds significant collector's value.
Note: SW Special Swedish Stainless Steel is treated with an extremely polished mirror finish, retaining the simplicity of a full mirror surface without Konosuke's mark. The HD2 Swedish Semi-Stainless Steel series is marked with Konosuke and treated with a glossy finish.
