Sakai Shoryu presents the meticulously crafted 'Galaxy Series Mioroshi Kiritsuke Wa-Gyuto.' This knife is hand-forged using three-layered technique with the core of extremely hard, sharp, and rust-resistant Silver #3 steel.
Bearing the name 'Galaxy,' it undergoes a traditional special heat treatment for proper quenching. The blade is meticulously ground with whetstones up to #12000, achieving a mirror-like finish, snow-like brightness, and a silky-smooth cutting experience, while also possessing antibacterial properties.
The overall design of the knife demonstrates high functionality, with its Kiritsuke form creating a straighter blade line, providing the functionality of a Usuba suitable for peeling radishes.
The blade surface is 'Hiradukuri,' finished with the highly challenging '水鏡研' technique, which involves hand-polishing the entire blade surface to a mirror finish.
This top-tier blade is a rare gem in the 'Galaxy' series, distinguished by its unique and powerful 'Mioroshi Kiritsuke' form, setting it apart from the conventional 'Kiritsuke Gyuto.'"
