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.

How to Maintain Semi-stainless Steel Knives

After use, simply wipe the knives dry, and do not use a dishwasher to clean it. If you don't plan to use the knives for an extended period, be sure to apply a thin layer of protective oil.

If you notice rust on the blade later on, you can remove it with a rust eraser. For minor rust on the mirror-finished parts, use rust removal paste. After cleaning, be sure to remove any remaining residue with a Cleaning Naphtha to eliminate all chemical remnants from the blade.

Please use the knives correctly. Different knives are designed for slicing, chopping, or handling frozen foods. Do not use them for purposes beyond their intended use to avoid damage.

We highly recommend using EDCI's high-tech rust prevention spray to maintain your semi-stainless steel knives. EDCI rust prevention spray is made in the USA, non-toxic, environmentally friendly, poses no harm to the environment, and is non-flammable.

It is also food-grade rust prevention spray, suitable for knives made of any type of steel. After spraying, it automatically forms a protective layer, and it can be used directly for cutting food without contaminating it. Users no longer need to worry about rust on semi-stainless steel knives.
