I remeber one of my very first few proper high-end Japanese kitchen / outdoor knives were by Mr. Itou (伊藤玉翠). About 10 years ago, very few maker were producing such high detailed, stunning looking kitchen knvies. His knives are bold, with great detail, cuts exceptionally well and very very eye catching. Mr. Itou's knives are exclusively western style, utilizing different types of exotic materials. The R2 / SG2 blades holds edge for a very long period of time, and can achieve a very high level of sharpness.
I usually have Mr. Itou's knife for sale at the showroom only but decided to offer them to you during the BFCM sale.
