Japanese Chef Knife Mazaki Naoki Hon Sanmai Blue 2 Bullnose Gyuto 240mm
Naoki Mazaki is a solo blacksmith hand-crafting all aspects of his knives in-house from his workshop in Niigata Japan. His style more traditional than many smiths of his generation, he is creating some of the most sought after knives at this present time.
Mazaki's quenching technique is advanced, yielding excellent edge retention and sharpness, he forge-welds all of his carbon steel knives in house, and finishes his bevel with a variety of different whetstones, all by hand. Mazaki works prefers the more traditional Shirogami #2 and Aogami to craft his knives, and leaves a rustic finish on many of his blades. Hon-sanmai here means the sanmai (3-layer, for double bevel knife) billet is cladded by the maker using traditional forge welding method rather than using a pre-cladded billet from the steel factory. The bevels are finished by hand on his whetstones to ensure an even grind and geometry. Lightly convexed bevels and very thin behind the cutting edge.-
A double beveled, blade length 240mm for professional use.
