OUL 240mm Wa-Gyuto. Blade is hand forged with shirogami #2 (white steel) and soft iron cladding. Dyed Maple wood octagon handle with pakka ferrule.
The OUL Shirogami series double bevel knives are forged by Yoshikazu Tanaka, a top level ‘Dentokougeshi’ blacksmith in Sakai City, Osaka. Hi coaxes excellent edge retention and toughness from Shirogami #2 (white steel). They are ground by Maruyama-san, a very talented up and coming sharpener, and have excellent, thin grinds.
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. It should be mentioned that extra care is required, as the knife is not stainless and should be dried immediately after use. It will develop a dark patina with use, but any orange rust should be removed with a light abrasive.
