Chroma Haiku Kurouchi 4.25" Ko Yanagi Sashimi Knife


The Chroma Haiku Kurouchi 4.25" Ko Yanagi Sashimi Cnife is a stunning example of rustic style and high performance. The unique look of blade and its glittering metallic cutting edge is as captivating as the history behind the Tosa region in which it is forged. Ko Yanagi knives have been used in Japan for generations in the preparation of sushi and this knife looks and performs spectacularly in that task. Although this is shorter than the full length blade, its compact size makes it popular among fishermen and sushi chefs alike.

The Chroma Haiku Kurouchi series is a breathtaking modern homage to the ancient art of world-class handmade Japanese steel. Fit for an emperor, this knife's beauty is only matched by its performance, durability and craftsmanship. As part of Chroma's prestigious Takumi range, the out-of-the-box sharpness is extraordinary. The steel is forged in a sandwich construction, with extremely hard blue AOKO steel at the center and protective layers of softer iron on either side. The rustic antique look reflects the Tosa region of Japan where each knife is forged. Only the cutting edge is polished for a raw look that's unique among the world's finest blades.
