I left a negative review earlier cause Musashi missed a part of my order and didn't respond to my mail. The latter was apparently because of Japanese holiday. They have by now responded so all should be sorted soon.
Outside of this experience I am very content with the Gyuto knive I use myself and the ones I've ordered as gifts for friends.
I recently bought my 4th and 5th Knives as my collection grows. I purchased the Gyuto and Sashimi to go with my Petty, Nakiri and Santoku I bought last year. The first 3 knives I use daily and have sharpened only twice in the year I have had them. They remain incredibly sharp and true. I do not use the dishwasher for the knives, but wash each by hand and ensure they are dry correctly before storing. The Gyuto is perhaps superfluous given I have the Santoku, but I couldn't resist the bigger brother. I find it well balanced and the extra length is good when cutting bigger bits of meat. The Sashimi is fantastic too, I can get incredibly thin slices of meat or fish with no effort at all. My only wish? That they would do the Bunka knife in the western handle!!
nice product, best quality!
This is a beautiful knife.There is no comparison between my old similar style knife and this Gyuto. Its strength, balance and sharpness is something to behold.
Thie knife is just amazing, I use it everyday to cut vegetables, fruit,…My favorite!
The process of heating and forging each material for mold making is repeated three or four times to quickly shape the blade and create durability before the carbon is released from the steel causing it to lose its original strength.
