A 240mm gyuto with an aogami super core steel from Yoshihiro with a tsuchime and kurouchi finish. Aogami Super (by Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is one of the best Japanese carbon steels. It has excellent edge sharpness and retention, but it can also achieve high hardness without becoming brittle. 

*A gyuto is a type of Japanese kitchen knife that is used for a variety of cutting tasks. This multipurpose knife is used for slicing, dicing, and chopping meats, vegetables, and fruits. The versatility of the Gyuto makes it a popular choice for both professional and home chefs.

※ This knife is stainless clad: Stainless clad is a sanmai or warikomi construction where the carbon steel core (e.g. shirogami#2, aogami#2, AS, etc) is sandwiched between outer layers of stainless steel (see last image). The stainless cladding (the "jacket") makes the knife much easier to care for. The key advantage of stainless clad knives is that the stainless outer layers protect the reactive carbon steel core from corrosion and patina formation. This makes maintenance much simpler compared to monosteel carbon or iron clad knives.

Care Guide
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
