Product Description

Size: 9.5 IN

The most versatile and essential of all knives a cook can have is a Japanese chef's knife known as a Gyuto knife. Preparing delicious meals starts with taking wholesome ingredients and using the best tools such as a high quality chef's knife to make every meal into something special. From dicing, slicing, and chopping fresh produce from a farmer's market to carving a roast chicken straight from the oven, even the simplest tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional. Our Nickel VG-10 Gold Hammered Damascus Gyuto Chef Knife is forged with a Western style curved blade that smoothly rocks back and forth with an extended tip for quick chopping. Forged and hammered with 46 layers of steel in the Damascus tradition with a Nickel VG-10 Gold Core, this knife is complimented with a traditional Japanese style handcrafted Shitan Rosewood handle affixed with a Shitan Rosewood bolster. A protective wooden sheath called a Saya encases each knife and adds to its appearance when not in use. The hammered texture of the blade eliminates friction and keeps food from sticking to the blade. Every knife from Yoshihiro is handcrafted by master artisans creating a unique one of a kind work of art. Japanese knives should always be sharpened and honed on premium quality Japanese water stones. A good quality Japanese water stone not only is the best surface to sharpen and maintain the blade of your knife, but it is also the best tool to preserve and take care of the high quality steel that it is made of. For maintenance info and professional Japanese knife sharpening contact our Yoshihiro Cutlery store.

It is an extremely high-quality core of Japanese VG-10 steel with Damascus-style layering and a hammered finish to give it better durability and aesthetics.

While I'm an amateurish-at-best chef, I do know a few things about blades- former boy scout, shave with a straight razor that I hone and strop myself, I've forged several knives of my own, etc. I'm, er, a bit fond of bladed objects.

So when I tell you that this knife is sharp enough to take me by surprise, I hope you'll take my meaning. It passes the paper test with flying colors, it will very easily shave whatever hair you try it on (and the skin beneath if you're not careful!), but it passed my personal favorite test- the overripe blueberry. Forget slicing a ripe tomato, the paper-thin blueberry skin is a real test of a knife in my experience, and this knife handled it with surgical ease. On top of that, it is an absolute show-stopper aesthetically- the pictures don't begin to do it justice.

I should note, however, what it is *not*. Do not labor under the misunderstanding that this is a folded steel blade- it is not. It is an extremely high-quality core of Japanese VG-10 steel with Damascus-style layering and a hammered finish to give it better durability and aesthetics. If you're looking for an actual Japanese folded-steel blade, look at a price point 10-20x what you see here and consider yourself lucky if you find one.

If, however, you're looking for an extremely high-quality, beautiful, razor-sharp kitchen knife, I highly recommend this one.

This knife shipped quickly and was packed well. The blade is absolutely razor sharp. I use this knife everyday in my restaurant kitchen and after the first month the edge is just as good as it was when I recieved it! The blade has a beautiful look to it and is perfectly balanced. The wooden saya is also a nice addition. I would recommend this knife to anyone looking for a Japanese style knife. It's priced great and makes a great workhorse for any professional or home cook. I will be purchasing another knife from this fine knife maker.

The YOSHIHIRO-NSW Hammered Damascus Japanese Chef Gyuto 7" chefs knife came a few days ago and it's absolutely beautiful to look at. It's light, well balanced, and very,very sharp. I also have some Shun, Global, and German knifes, but this is the one I will use for most of my work. The knife was obviously crafted by true artist of the ancient Japanese art of Samurai swords making, and I love it. Thanks

This knife is just a great piece for not just a chef but for a home cook its just great with the perfect weight that only a real japanease knife can have. I already knew about the cuality of yoshihiro knifes but at the moment i open the box i was blow away for the perfect lines and the artistic designs, and afther i try out at my job this knife i just feel in love is extreamly sharp and gives a very fluent action in each cut

Seriously the best knife out there for the house. If you can handle wiping your knife and drying it every time you've used it and wont leave it in standing water, there is not a better knife out there. We've had ours almost a year now, and it still cuts virtually like new, and we use it every day, a lot, for everything (except cutting frozen chicken or bones).

My wife was so mad at me- I'd always be buying chef's knives because I hated all the other ones I owned. They were either too heavy, always getting dull, or just generally a pain to use. Once I got this knife, I got a second one... one for me one for my wife. They are absolutely effortless, lightweight, and just beautiful. Mine is this one (the rosewood handle), I got the white handled one for her. This blade seems somewhat improved (very hard to tell the difference in the descriptions, but I think this is 42 layers and the white is 26). The added layers don't make the knife any thicker, just that the layers are thinner, which has seemed to help defend against spotting and discoloration.

Some cautions: the back corner (the 90 degree tip by the handle) is also wicked sharp. The stainless wrap is fantastic but will still spot if you leave it in water. Probably should get it professionally sharpened about once every 2 years. Buy them now, these things are going to get more expensive as people wake up to how good they really are. I've bought a bunch and gave them away as gifts... simply the best knife for people who like to cook.

I just got my order this morning and so excited to open the box. Knife is razor sharp and is beautiful with the hammered finish. Love the saya that comes with it, so i wont need to put the knife in a knife protector anymore. I was choosing to buy between a Shun and a Yoshihiro and finally decided to get the Yoshihiro brand, and wasn't disappointed with the knife.. beautiful hand hammered finish..

I am a chef and had looked to get a nice handmade knife as a cheaper option to leave around work than my Misono Ux-10s. I had decent hopes for this knife but it has exceeded them all. My Misonos haven't left their case in weeks and I find myself ready to order a Petty knife. Great company with fast response and shipping time. Can't ask for much more than that.
