Yu Kurosaki 黒崎 優

A young artisan in his forties, Yu Kurosaki has become one of leading knife makers in Japan, winning top awards and attention for his hand-forged knives especially his Tsuchime finish. Inheriting over 700 years of knife making skills from previous generations of Echizen artisans, Mr Kurosaki has focused his career on making knives that give unforgettable impressions and incredible cutting pleasures. Yu's unique Tsuchime design, as seen in his Shizuku and Fujin series, are not only aesthetically magnificent but also incredibly functional when it comes to making food less likely to stick to blades.
