OUL 180mm Usuba. Blade is hand forged with shirogami #2 steel and soft iron cladding. Dyed Maple wood octagon handle with pakka ferrulle.
The OUL Shirogami series single bevel knives are forged by Yoshikazu Tanaka, a top level ‘Dentokougeshi’ blacksmith in Sakai City, Osaka. He coaxes excellent edge retention and toughness from Shirogami #2 (white steel). They are sharpened Nomura-san, a veteran Sakai sharpener.
Shirogami, or white steel, which is a very fine grained carbon steel made from low contaminate iron. It's loved for its ease of sharpening and ability to take a very fine, razor sharp edge.
Carbon steel will develop a patina with use, especially with acidic foods. Special attention is needed to keep from rusting. Do not leave wet. Hand wash & dry, no dishwasher. Hardwood-end grain or softwood long grain cutting boards are preferred; avoid bamboo and plastic cutting boards. Rust can be removed with a light abrasive.
