It's finally here! Kisuke x Zahocho. This is the second version of our collaboration with Kisuke Manaka hamono.

There are some minor changes on this bunka. Compared to the first one we released in 2020, this one is slightly taller (54mm) and longer (190mm), it has more curve towards the tip, and has a different finish---polished tsuchime.

Another great feature on this batch (bunka and gyuto) is the asymmetric grind. The edge geometry is also excellent; it's thin behind the edge yet it doesn't feel delicate.
