This special work of art is the brain child of newly award Master Sword Smith Yasha Yakuwa and The Master Sharpener himself Shibata-San. Yakuwa-San and Shibata-San, spent 4 days heating iron ore, using coal. This process is the traditional way of making Tamahagane Steel. Tamahagane Steel dates back to over 6,000 BCE. 3 knives were made as a collab, more so a fun project. A nakiri, A santoku, and A 210mm Gyuto. They were Forged and heat treated by Yakuwa-San. Shibata-San did his thing grinding, profiling, and sharpening. This is your only opportunity to own a knife this rare.
