The Gyuto is the Japanese version of the classic Western Chef’s knife. It is a true multi-purpose knife that can perform wide range of tasks, can be used with a variety of different cutting techniques and is suitable for cutting the vast majority of meats, fishes, vegetables and fruits.

The knife bears visible impressions of the hand-forging process (round hammer dents on the blade), which gives it a beautiful finish and also prevents food from sticking to the blade.

Aogami-Super Carbon Steel | Blue Super Steel
Aogami-Super (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is one of the greatest Japanese Carbon Steels. In addition to containing more Carbon, Chromium and Tungsten than Blue Steel No.1, it also includes Molybdenum. It has very good edge sharpness and excellent edge retention, but is also capable of attaining high hardness without being brittle. Consequently, many knife enthusiasts rate Aogami Super as one of the very best High Carbon Steels in the world.
C 1.40-1.50 % | Cr 0.3-0.5 % | W 2.0-2.5 % | Mo 0.30-0.50 % | V 0.5 %

Kurouchi Finish, the unprocessed (black) part on the top side of the blade has already developed a dark patina, which protects the blade and gives it a traditional Japanese look.

Knife on par with the experience of buying from Musashi - top-notch

First good knife I ever dared to buy, most likely not the last.
The out of the box knife was sharper than any I've ever held in my hand.
For the first 2 weeks i couldn't stop cooking because I just wanted to cut, chop and slice everything in my kitchen - that's how satisfying of an experience it is.
But Musashi manages to make it so much more than just a knife. The experience altogether is just premium. I don't know if it is their quality, their attention to detail, their branding or everything together, but they delivered above and beyond.

I waited with this review so I could test the Knife and get comfortable with it.
Out of the box if you really squint and look closely, there were some weird stain-like patterns on the blade (and no, It's not the beautiful Hamon and Heat Treatment patterns you see in the picture) But it wasn't bad.
What I also noticed is that overnight, after the first use - even though I washed and wiped the knife after using it - it had dark spots along the cutting edge of the blade on both sides. These are, as I have later learned, not stains, but patina - a really thin layer of rust that builds up really quickly on high carbon blades and should be removed regularly, probably once every 1-2 weeks - .
They do mention that this steel is prone to rust and patina, so I can't say i wasn't warned.
After more than a month of using it - maybe not daily, but once every other day - I finally noticed that it's weight alone isn't enough to slice through the vegetables anymore, I finally need to also give it a little pressure to start cutting. It's flawless out of the box sharpness lasted longer than expected. I am yet to give the whetstone a try and sharpen the blade.

I would recommend buying a rust eraser together with this knife because it will accumulate some of that patina quickly.
I don't know if I should have bought the rust eraser instead of the wooden sheath / casing.

Product Features

Handmade Forging

With the traditional forging process, the molecules of the iron material are finely tuned, leading to the completion of a "living kitchen knife" that breathes.

Durability

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.

Sharpness

The blade is the most important factor in achieving the best possible sharpness. It is polished in our own blade factory to produce uncompromising sharpness.

Handle

The highest priority is placed on sturdiness, a sense of luxury, and a shape that is easy to grip and does not cause fatigue even after long hours of use.
