Aogami Super is the finest steel that has been improved by adding various additive, while Shirogami #2 is the purest and most traditional Japanese steel.

It is known that Shirogami#2 can be the sharpest knife depending on the skill of the blacksmith, and this kitchen knife is exactly that. Forged by Mr. Nao Yamamoto, who is a traditional craftsman, the thick spine create a good balance and ease of use, and the cutting edge inserts sharply into the ingredients. Other blacksmiths also praised it as “this is a amazing knife”.

Shirogami#2 is not stainless steel, so it will rust. After use, wipe off the water and be careful not to rust.
