Makoto Kurosaki is an exceptionally talented blacksmith working in Takefu Knife Village. His eponymous line of lasers features ultra-thin, hammer-forged blades made of SG2 powdered steel, known for excellent edge retention and stain resistance. Crafted in the san mai style where a softer metal is clad to the harder core for ease of sharpening.
Handles and bolsters are crafted from beautiful sakura wood.
Originally a knife for home cooks, bunkas are a cross between a santoku and nakiri with a pointed tip. They are very popular with chefs right now, thanks to their all purpose functionality, compact shape and pointed edge, which is useful for cross hatching produce like eggplants or king oyster mushrooms.
