Yu Kurosaki, well what can we say, probably the most well known Japanese Blacksmith in a worldwide scale. You don't get that kind of reputation by being average. 

Kurosaki-san has forged his reputation by combining the highest quality of production and skill, traditional techniques, and new and exciting contemporary designs. Not only do his knives perform and last second to none, but they also stand out with their incredible and innovative designs, patterns and handles. 

The Senko range, Senko roughly translating as eternity or great antiquity, is a nod to the heritage and tradition in these knives, and the longevity of their future. Made from Stainless SG2 steel these are a super hard steel meaning you get amazing edge retention and incredible sharpness. It doesn't get much better than that
