A relatively young blacksmith born in 1983. Kisuke-San trained for 9 years before he moved onto his own. He claims to have self taught mastery of stainless steel forging and heat treatment. All of his knives are forge welded in house using the Warikomi method.
This new line is truly remarkable from Kisuke. He forge welds Aogami #2 and soft iron together. Then folds them together to make this beautiful Damascus pattern. Then forge welding a bar of Aogami #1 for the core makes this knife have incredible edge retention not to mention they are made in very limited quantities, finished by hand, made by hand, and all done by the hands of Kisuke himself.
