This knife is part of the Homura Guren series of Kurouchi finished Aogami No. 2 knives. It comes with the same profile as its mirror polished cousin and is forged and heat treated the same way. What stands out is the Kurouchi finish with a hand hammered Tsuchime finish. The handle is made from burnt and lacquered oak. The Guren series is popular and offered at a more reasonable price point compared to the Kogetsu or mirror polished lines.
Please Note: The handle being natural wood can vary in colour.
