This is amazing collaboration knife between Yasha Yukawa-san, Swedish born swordsmith in Yamaguchi Prefecture and Takayuki Shibata-san who is the president of Masakage knives, Kotetsu knives and West Japan Tools.
This all started when Yukawa-san visited Shibata-san in Hiroshima and started the conversation of doing the collaboration knife.
The knife is forged by Yukawa-san with a steel called Tamahagane, usually only used for sword making as its rare and labour intensive process to produce them.
The forged knife (or blank) was sent Shibata-san for final sharpening.
This is a truly one of a kind knife we have ever seen.
