VG-10 Steel Core
VG-10 is a Japanese stainless steel that is often utilized in high end Japanese cutlery. It has a hardness, or a HRC level, that exceeds that of most other stainless steel cutlery on the market. Its exceptional hardness means that the cutting edge can be constructed thinner, and therefore sharper, allowing the blade to seamlessly cut through almost any ingredient placed in front of it.
Hammer clad Damascus steel
The hard VG-10 steel is clad in a softer Damascus steel in order to give the blade an added toughness and durability. The hammered texture of the blade eliminates friction and keeps food from sticking to the blade.
- VG-10 Steel Core (HRC 60)
- Hammered Damascus Steel cladding.
- Stain Resistant.
- Spine Thickness: 3mm.
- Western-Style Mahogany Handle
- Handcrafted in Japan
Elegant Exterior with Functionality
An elegant 16 layer hammered outer steel is a stylish yet functional design eliminating friction and keeping food from sticking to the blade.
Stain Resistant for a Peace of Mind
Both the VG-10 steel core and the outer Damascus steel are stain resistant. This means that they resist the forming of rust when it is left wet during its use. The user is free to use the knife for extended periods without the worry of any rust buildup.
Balanced and Fit for Comfort
Complimented with a premium handcrafted Mahogany handle that extends to the full tang of the knife and ergonomically welds to the hand for seamless use.

Easy to get a laser edge on it, and simple to retain that edge. Those are the touchstones we look for in the industry.
No more huge gauge German knives made out of tool steel that you have to get a professional to put on a grindstone!
I use a ceramic steel about twice a week on this thing and I can brunoise shallots so small and fine that you'd need a jewellers loop to see them!
Seller responded immediately agreed to replace knife will update when new knife is received.
I have used it a number of times so far. Slices through tomatoes cleanly and thinly! It also does a great job chopping/mincing.
So far, the edge has been holding up well!
After this purchase, I have ordered some sharpening whetstones and am learning how to properly maintain the incredible sharp edge
The knife came to me quite sharp. I was able to wash the knife and use it right away with great results. I have a LINK KING STONE that I will be using to sharpen it soon. I'm sure I will get good results. If I get anything but good results I will update this part of the review.
One thing that kind of surprised me though is that my knife was single bevelled on the right(luckily for a righty like me). I had read a question on here asking about the knife being double bevelled. So I have to wonder if this knife is designed to be double bevelled or single bevelled? Either way, sharpening will be easier and I have seen other sushi knives that are single bevelled. It is possible that this is a purposeful design.
The handle is great and is real mahogany. As a woodworker, I love to see mahogany finished the way it has been on this knife. The knife is full tang exactly as shown and has a very solid feel when handled.
This knife does not come with a saya(scabbard) so I definitely recommend picking one up. It will help protect the knife for decades to come. I personally got the 8.25inch version of this knife and so I picked up a Yoshihiro Lacquered Magnolia Wooden Blade Protector Saya Cover for Gyuto Chef Knife (210mm) to properly cover it while it is being stored.
Dimensions of the knife can be seen in the photos I have attached.
The box the knife comes in is very nice and decorative. This would make a great gift box.
*Excellent metal composition
*Takes a great edge
*Great feel in the handle
*Very solid construction
You can spend many hundreds of dollars on a great Gyuto. This knife definitely hangs with the pros for a superior price. It is still a bit steep compared to the average knife sets you see in North American kitchens, but I wouldn't look anywhere else unless you have a very specific requirement of the knife (like being able to cut bone or something like that).
This knife will do most everything you need--even if you are a professional chef.
Overall: 5/5 stars (>=.5 rounds up, <.5 rounds down) => 5 stars
