About This Item
Used Shigefusa Wa Gyuto 210mm Kasumi Swedish Steel blade knife
It is one of my customer collections selling as consignment on our website.
It comes with original paper box and it is used but very lightly used. I just sharpened and polished it little bit. It is still in excellent condition. Mr. Tokifusa Iizuka who makes Shigefusa knife had been an apprentice in Sanjo Seisakujo, Iwasaki Razor (Mr.Kosuke Iwasaki and Mr. Shigeyoshi Iwasaki) to learn how to make razor for 10 years, and then Mr.Iizuka wanted to be Japanese cooking knife blacksmith, so Mr. Shigeyoshi Iwasaki introduced Mr. Iizuka to Mr.Munenori Nagashima who makes Japanese sword and Kasumi and kitaeji knife, etc. Mr. Iizuka became an apprentice again to learn how to make knives to Mr. Nagashima before starting own business Shigefusa. Mr. Iizuka has two sons and they make Shigefusa Knives with Mr. Iizuka.
It is hand sharpening all the way, so it is easy to sharpen by sharpening stone.
