The Isamitsu kurouchi shirogami#1 gyuto 210mm is a high-quality Japanese knife that showcases the exceptional craftsmanship of Yhuki Abe and Gaku Kanatsu. This dynamic duo, both originating from Teruyasu Fujiwara hamono, has combined their skills to establish Isamitsu, a relatively new company that is quickly gaining recognition for their outstanding blades.

This particular series features a thinner cross-sectional geometry compared to regular Isamitsu offerings, while still employing the same steel and forging methods as their original knives. As per Gaku-san, "There is no difference in quality. But yours are relatively thinner than regular. We made them with the highest priority on maximizing the finest sharpness."

With a generous blade height of approximately 54mm, this gyuto is an excellent choice for tall gyuto fans who appreciate the additional knuckle clearance. The 215mm blade length is perfect for a wide range of cutting tasks, making it a versatile addition to any kitchen.

Care Guide

Proper care is essential for Japanese kitchen knives. Here are some important points to consider:
  • Use a whetstone to maintain sharpness. Avoid electric sharpeners and pull-through sharpeners, as they are not suitable for Japanese kitchen knives. Honing rods, typically used for western-style knives, may potentially damage the edge, particularly if you're a beginner.

  • Choose a wooden or rubber cutting board instead of bamboo or poly boards to preserve the knife's edge.

  • Keep the knife clean and dry, especially if it is made of carbon steel. Carbon knives are prone to rusting. If you prefer a lower-maintenance option, stainless or stainless-clad carbon knives are recommended.

  • Avoid using the knife to cut through bones or frozen foods. It's best to use a separate knife specifically designed for these tasks.

  • When cutting, use a smooth and fluid motion, avoid twisting or torquing the blade. This technique helps maintain control and minimizes the risk of damage.

  • Never put Japanese kitchen knives in the dishwasher. Instead, hand wash them with mild soap, ensuring thorough cleaning, and then dry them completely before storing.

By following these guidelines, you can ensure the longevity and optimal performance of your Japanese kitchen knives. Remember, proper care and attention will enhance your culinary experience and protect your investment.
