About blacksmith:

The knives made in Echizen city are called Echizen Uchi Hamono. The art of making Japanese kitchen knives has a history of about 700 years. Blacksmith Nao Yamamoto is a traditional craftsman who started blacksmithing when he was 18yo. He has been highly acclaimed at many knife shows and set up his own workshop at Echizen, Fukui in 2013. He became a traditional craftsman (DENTO KOGEISHI) at the young age of 39. 

About steel type:
AOGAMI NO2/Blue Steel No.2 is a high carbon steel developed by Hitachi Special Stainless Steel. This steel is made by adding Chromium and Tungsten to White Steels (type of high carbon steel, also developed by Hitachi) to improve hardness and toughness. Blue Steel No.2 has more sharpness, edge retention and hardness in comparison to White Steels. In general, Blue Steels make resharpening harder than White steels. It will rust if it is left wet or left in contact with something containing any amount of moisture, so need to wipe and dry completely after using. For longer storage protect with a film of oil to avoid lasting.

- Hand wash with warm water and towel dry.
- Use a sharpening stone to maintain the sharpness of the blade.
