This Aogami Blue steel #2 is made with pure sand iron at the famous Yasugi plant in Shimane prefecture, Japan. This benefits you with a blade that is the best for extreme sharpness and edge-retention.
The steel is forged with the skillful technique named "Teuchi" which means the pattern is hand beaten onto the blade. The beautiful pattern and design is called "Kurouchi" which is the rustic and scaly design on top of the blade. This is formed when forging the steel and allows the carbon steel to be less reactive and adds a unique and complex look.
