Yasuki silver-3 steel is a rust-resistant stainless steel material that, just like age-old carbon steel in Japan, can be forged by a blacksmith using a hammer. The production of knives utilizing Yasuki silver-3 steel is also extremely difficult; and because it requires special techniques, there are only a few blacksmiths in Japan who can make these knives and the number of knives in the market are very few.
The hand forged making and the attaching of the blade and its mirror-finish and all processes were done by traditional craftsman Hiroshi Kajihara of Kurotori tanzo factory, and it is a beautiful knife with a supreme sharpness that lasts.
