We have been working with Gihei for many years and during that time they have produced some of the nicest blades we have offered. We carry a variety of knives both under their own name and custom branded as Richmond ZDP189.

The gyuto featured here is constructed using HAP40 PM semi-stainless steel as the inner core (hagane) with a strong outer jigane made from stainless steel. HAP40 is a very good steel for kitchen knives, especially when heat treated to 65-66 HRC. The heat treatment applied to Gihei blades is of notable quality. This combination results in a knife that takes a great edge and stays sharp for a long time.

The 210mm gyuto is a simple yet elegant knife. It is fairly light, even for a small gyuto, and it features a very nice grind that starts quite high on the blade. Fit and finish are of equally fine quality and this attribute is emphasized with the addition of a lovely semi-custom octagonal wenge handle with a tiger maple ferrule. Therefore it is good choice for both left- and right-handed users. The profile is quite curved for a gyuto and this makes it a good blade for rocking cutters.

This is an all-around great knife that is perfect for users looking for a smaller chef type knife that will hold its edge for an incredibly long time.

    5  Best Knife I've Ever Owned, November 14, 2014
    Posted By: Jordan Ross

    I'm not one to review, but this is truly the best knife I've ever owned. Everything about it is perfect. It's profile, width, grind, weight, feel, truly everything about it is phenomenal. The best thing about it is the steel. The HAP40 holds an edge longer than any AS knife I've ever owned. Not only does it hold an edge but it sharpens with ease and gets spooky sharp. Literally flies through prep. If you're considering this knife and it's not out of stock, I'd recommend you go for it.
