About Hatsukokoro Inazuma AS - The Hatsukokoro Inazuma (translates as "lightning")AS is a hand-forged masterpiece, made by a talented Blacksmith in Tsubame Sanjo who prefers to remain anonymous. This knife has anAogami Supercore, with softer iron cladding. This combination of steel allows for the blacksmith to create a beautiful finish of folded steel and kurouchi - honestly feels like it should be too much, but here it is just right.
We've also found these to be some of the thinner knives that we've seen for a while, the edges that are scary sharp. We are thrilled to carry this line from Hatsukokoro who continue to curate an exceptional series of knives.
