What is kurouchi knife?
Kurouchi knives retain the scaly residue left from the forging process, meaning that the residue works as coating on the carbon steel to prevent from rust.
The finish of Kurouch reduces reactivity on carbon steel knives, and give the knife a very characterful, rustic aesthetic prized by many knife enthusiasts.
Kurouchi finishes vary widely in appearance, uniformity, and durability. Rarely do pictures do these finishes justice as they have a very complex look and feel to them.
Of course, you need to sharpen the edge every time after using it even if the Kurouchi coating works for the sides of blade.

    This knife is made from Aogami steel from Shimane prefecture where high quality iron sand is found. The gray steel is sandwiched with ingot. This knife is handmade one at a time by the hands of our master knife maker. It is a premium knife created in the traditional way. If you have never used a quality handmade knife before, you will be amazed at just how well it cuts. For hunting and outdoor.

    Both is the best steel for cutlery in Japan.

    Shirogami steel is for want easy to be sharpening people.

    Aogami steel is for want keeping long lasting blade. 

    Hunting knife and Hatchet with 3-point differences.

    1. The Hunting knife is sharp, but the hatchet is rectangular.

    2. The hatchet does not have a collar, but many hunting knife have a collar.

    3. Hunting knives tend to have a compact handle relative to the length of the blade.
    Many of the hatchets are about the same length as the blade.
