     Since introducing 16 different Hunting knives about a year ago, the demands were far exceeding what Mr. Itou can produce. We have sold out all knives in one month, and received so many good words from the actual users as well as many inquiries when more knives will be available next.

In April, 2006, we have introduced Mr. Itoufs custom kitchen knives, hand crafted from the special R2 powdered high-speed tool steel core blade edge hardened to HRc.62, and forge-sandwiched with 32 layered stainless Damascus steel.

    You can see the details at "Mr.Itou Custom Kitchen Knives" on JCK (Our Kitchen Knife Web Shop).

 

      The reputation and demand were terrific! We had so many good words from the users for the extremely  sharp cutting and edge retention ability. The secret of this is the finest powdered steel R2 and the forging process. He said he was first using Hitachi Blue steel (Aogami), from which he could obtain a good cutting, but it was rusty. He has then used R1 from Kobe Steel, but it was brittle. Finally, he worked with Kobe Steel to develop new formula, R2 that has improved and exceeded over R1 steels. He also found his special forging process makes it sharper and longer edge retention. Another secret is he uses a large water stone wheel with slow rotating to grind his blades, unlike the normal belt sander grinding. This will prevent over-heating the blade to ruin the proper hardness and its chemical characters.

 

@     He is also an avid hunter, and makes some Hunting knives with same R2 blade and finish. He is also a leather craftsman, and each leather sheath is hand formed to fit each knife perfectly and hand stitched and custom engraved by him. This will be a great opportunity to obtain his superb knife for your outdoor activity.
