Well known for his unique blade designs Yu Kurosaki is the youngest blacksmith to ever receive the title of "Master Blacksmith" awarded by the Japanese government for upholding traditional craft techniques. Not only does Kurosaki tempt us with his beautiful blade designs, but their ability to perform keeps us coming back. High quality materials and age old forging techniques combine to create a knife with an extremely sharp edge that will hold up throughout use.
Shizuku means "water drop" in Japanese. The Shizuku series is one of Yu Kurosaki's signature hammer patterns and is both beautiful and practical by preventing food from sticking to the blade.
